Review: "Walls" - Loulita Gill
“Walls” is a thought-provoking and heart-wrenching single reflecting upon Gill’s past traumas and empowering us through optimistic and child-like innocence. Originally written as a poem when putting her three boys to bed, Gill wondered what walls about her might say about her life, viewing her struggles and triumphs merely as a bystander. With “Walls”, Gill hopes that her audience will take comfort in knowing that trauma is never your responsibility and create avenues into healing. Besides singing about the physical walls, Gill also describes the emotional walls that trauma might have brought us, preventing us from truly connecting with others and ourselves.
Gill’s vocals are hauntingly beautiful, filling out the emotional depth of the song as the minimalistic production lets her shine, emphasizing the raw and honest emotions being conveyed. Especially as the world heals from the pandemic, many resonate with the feelings of isolation and challenges of navigating the world around us. Gill dives into these complex emotions headfirst, baring a part of her soul to offer a sense of comfort and camaraderie to all those that listen. “Walls” is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal piece of music that offers a powerful evocation portrayal of the human experience.
