With a tight, almost martial snare giving the song a hard, unyielding spine, the dense synths and Lial’s searing and soulful vocals give an RNB flavour to a subtly tip hop sound. For all that though, the track still has a very pop sensibility, the backing vocals echoing chart hooks and anthemic moments, making it moody and memorable, giving the listener what feels like an insight in to Lial’s very soul.
She says about the Heart Scars EP: “I released three of these songs as singles throughout the last 6 months. Pulling them together for the EP has been so rewarding. I wrote them as a body of music and they make sense sitting together. I thought a lot about track order; I’m not sure many people listen to EPs or albums all the way through that much anymore but when you do I believe the tracks need to make sense of each other, and they become bigger than the sum of their parts when they sit together.”
