Alessia Cara “Here”
Sorry for not posting in the last few weeks, college has gotten VERY busy. With mid-terms, random tests, and trying to manage a social life on top of everything else. But, I have managed to find some really good music to get me through it (like how I did that lol). Alessia Cara graced my ears with “Here” during a Halloween expedition in the middle of New Orleans. As we danced, and tried to sing along, I decided that this song deserved countless reviews…but ill only do one. Canadian singer and songwriter Alessia Caracciolo released “Here” in April of 2015 and it has taken over. The anti-party song describes everything we all think while being at a party when we’d “rather be at home all by ourselves”. And let’s be honest, we all have that “anti-social pessimist[ic]” vibe while being at parties that our friends forced us to go to. This song gives me so much life. Her voice is warm and kind of reminds me of Corinne Bailey Rae, just with a bit more edge. If you haven’t listened to “Here” yet, you can check it out and many of Alessia Cara’s other songs on Spotify.
