No is a Nice Word by 7000apart: Review
The latest single from the international pop duo 7000apart is a melodic emotional piece painting a picture of parting lovers.
No is a Nice Word is one of those songs that will have you on the fence. The song can be looked at from two different perspectives having different interpretations of its meaning. From one side it can be seen as one of them trying to put them back together trying to save the relationship. From another side, it can be seen as setting up clear boundaries and saying no to save both of them the trouble. Whatever the artists intended, how this song can have different interpretations by different people is really beautiful.
The duo has perfectly captured the emotions, uncertainty, melancholy, and desperation of a breakup through the lyrics and melodies of the song. Starting with a somber electric guitar, Amelie Eiding’s emotive vocals really bring out the expressions of the song. Already very expressive, the emotions in her singing are amplified by using several vocal layers backed up by the guitars reminiscent of the early 2000s alt-rock hits with their own pop spin on the instrumentals. With a chorus this catchy and emotional at the same time, this song is an instant earworm. But there’s more to the song that you’ll find out every time you hear it. It’s really one of those songs that you can play on repeat the whole night. This song definitely put their upcoming album Feel Your Feelings on the list of albums I can’t wait to hear. Their sound and especially Amelie’s singing style resonated with me.
