Taking A Look At The Pain And Anger Behind Breakups in Lonely Choir’s “Kind Song”
The end of a relationship brings forth a variety of turbulent emotions, such as sadness and anger. In Lonely Choir’s newest single, “Kind Song,” the musician combines these two emotions with the painful rawness of her vocals and the biting tone of her lyrics.
Listen to “Kind Song” below:
Lyrically, “Kind Song” showcases the pain and anger that comes along with a breakup. The song begins with Lonely Choir describing a scene where “I hope you get hit by a bus/ But I don’t want you to die/ I just want you to feel alone / At the hospital/ When they ask who to, call/ And you got no one.” Despite the anger and bitterness of the lyrics, there is still a message of hope at the end, as the song ends with, “Let the light come shine/ Someday I know I’ll be fine.”
The juxtaposition lyrics’ anger and the more gentle-sounding instrumentals illustrate the conflicting emotions that arise from the end of a relationship. The acoustic guitar holds the melody throughout the song, joined in by a chorus of string instruments and a soft drum beat. Towards the end of the song, though, the instrumental grows louder, aligning with the increasing power behind the vocals.
“Kind Song” showcases that along with sadness, there is also anger caused by the pain of losing that person or being mistreated by them. Overall, this is a must-add song to any breakup playlist, along with the rest of Lonely Choir’s music catalog.
Along with the release of “Kind Song” this year, Lonely Choir dropped two other singles, “I Miss You” and “You’re Dying.” Based in Denver, Colorado, Lonely Choir’s unique vocals and melancholic songs are popular among those who are fans of artists such as Phoebe Bridgers and Brandi Carlile.
