Review: "Symptoms" - Katie Belle

This song, “Symptoms” by Katie Belle, perfectly describes what it feels like to be so overwhelmed by a person you feel almost addicted to them. You’re hooked by this person, you feel so attached to them it makes you feel a bit crazy, missing them as soon as they leave the room and wishing that they were always nearby. With lyrics such as “I know I’ll be coming back for more” and “with every touch I feel relief,” Belle conveys this irresistible tug that’s almost past the point of understanding. This person is deep in your system, forcing you to feel all of the complexities that love and other deep emotions can cause, and this song encapsulates that experience in the way only music could.

“Symptoms” is an irresistibly catchy pop song, balancing smooth lyrics with a groovy melody that demands you dance to it. Right from the beginning, Belle’s signature breathy voice pulls you in, backed by a simple beat that starts the song off slow before developing into a heavier, infectious rhythm. The lush electronic soundscape created in this compelling track comes alive in the chorus, providing the perfect setting for the sultry lyrics that help make this song what it is. Raw vulnerability mixed with captivating production carry on through the rest of the song, slowing down in the bridge just to bring it to a peak in one last stunning chorus. All of these reasons, and more, are why this song is on immediate repeat!
