Review: “talk it out” - Ava Della Pietra

When you’re in a relationship, life can feel exciting, and your mood could be elevated. However, when that relationship ends without warning or reason, all of that excitement dies, and you’re left with one question… why? In Ava Della Pietra’s latest single, she explores this exact situation. “talk it out” is an energetic song about betrayal, heartache, confusion, and abandonment following a relationship that ended without any kind of word. It’s a powerful ballad that takes inspiration from the styles of artists like Olivia Rodrigo, Sia, and even Maren Morris. Even the lyrics hit you right in the feels: “I’ve been racking my brain / Trying to remember / Anything I said that could’ve upset you / I don’t have a clue.”

Like any song that deals with heartbreak, this one hit me right in the feels. However, I really liked how this wasn’t a slow and emotional type of song. It was high energy, and made me want to throw my head around dancing. I think the music video also did a great job of demonstrating this. You see Pietra posing for a painting class, where over time, the paintings get more chaotic and incomplete, a perfect comparison to the true meaning of the song. I also think that since the last time I reviewed one of Pietra’s songs, her voice has matured a bit more. It’s subtle, but I enjoyed listening to it.

Ava Della Pietra is a singer and songwriter who has been releasing music since 2019. Her debut single, “Christmas Tonight,” garnered around 600 thousand hits on Spotify since its initial release. Since then, she has released 13 singles, one EP, and has written many, many more. Aside from the music she is currently releasing, Pietra was also very involved in musical theater from a young age. Her most notable role (and my personal favorite) was when she played young Cosette in Les Miserables on Broadway. She has also performed at the infamous Tony Awards and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a big fan of Pietra, and her music has definitely influenced a lot of the artists I listen to now! I cannot wait to hear what she releases next.
