Album: Surrender

Artist: Birdy

Genre: #indie #pop

Non-Airable Tracks: N/A


​Birdy consistently is like that of a bassinet on a Fall day with the wind rocking you slowly as you listen to her emote and you drift off to sleep. Her latest single entitled "Surrender" is no different in that it offers a glimpse into the artist's left brain with that of feeling and reflection. "Surrender" is lined with dreamy backup vocals and uplifting piano keys that allow the listener to be taken on a journey of a soul torn in two. The song's major theme is that of internal conflict with references to nature such as the Northern Lights and the ocean causing a very visual experience with an audio track. The listener can relate to how divided she is in her lyrics, contemplating whether or not she should allow herself to ultimately surrender in a relationship and allow it to guide her in her path, or resist and acknowledge that perhaps this line of thinking is not the most healthy outlet and that she should grow as an individual instead. The track follows the standard pop song structure with a verse, chorus, verse chorus, bridge chorus, and although the format is predictable the way in which Bridy's voice compliments the instrumental as it builds to a crescendo only to end on a note of acceptance will have the listener writhing in their Autumn sweater longing for their special person that once was. Overall this song is perfect to compliment a rainy day when you are feeling the turmoils of love and wondering if you should simply surrender.
