If you’re nostalgic like me, early 2000s breakup songs were what made my childhood and teen years sane. I think that is what we are missing in this mainstream music world. Just the title, “Sweetest Pain” makes you understand the feeling of what this song is trying to portray. The breath before the first lyric was legendary, because you know we are about to hear some magic.
I like that the beat starts off slow. We are getting into the feeling of the “Sweet pain”, starting off with the sweet. As the song progresses, so does the beat. The drum drop every few seconds between lyrics is the best climb to the drop we are anticipating. Once that beat drips, you want to jump up and dance to the beat because you FEEL it. The song is pretty understandable with the title, but don’t let that fool you, it is everything you’d want and more.
We all know what it is like to be in a painful relationship. “I hate you but I want to stay” is probably something every girl has said to themselves at some point. Listening to Circle The Earth feel relatable and at home. I look forward to seeing what else they put out!
