Review: "Younger Then" -Lynda DeFuria
“Younger Then” is a phenomenal uplifting single. The singer reflects on a past relationship and how she has grown as a person after. She details her naivety and feeling intoxicated by a partner. The inspiring lyrics are complemented by a light melody and smooth vocals. This song feels like musical self-care.
The track begins with a dreamy piano. DeFuria’s soothing vocals join and bring to life her message of self-discovery. A highlight of the single would be the hazy melody and vocals after the chorus. The bridge is also another stand-out part of the song. During this section, the only instrument is the piano. The stripped-down bridge brings a new depth to the artist, adding a raspy element to her smooth voice.
Lynda DeFuria is from New York but was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a singer, songwriter, and actress. The vocalist attended Berkeley College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
