What ingredients should be listed in the recipe for a perfect breakup song?
When it comes to kiss-off tunes, we gradually got accustomed to two main scenarios. We either listen to sad ballads indulging into sweet memories of two lovers or we turn to angry verses and grudge-filled choruses. One of the very few well-known exceptions is Bob Dylan and his legendary farewell songs (Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright, It Ain’t Me Babe,…), quite different for their irony and frankness.
With her upcoming single Fire
, the 22-year-old, French-born singer and songwriter Amelle Rose
gives us something fresh. Fire
is a breakup song, but it delivers the theme with a different point of view.
One of the former lovers, the songwriter herself, is the main focus of the song, as she regains her strengths as an individual after the breakup.
Sassiness, pride, and a spark of joy for the new future ahead are what emerge in this captivating pop-rock anthem, quite far from the stereotypical kiss-off ballads. The song is an enjoyable mix of energetic electric guitars, strong vocals, and memorable hooks.
Amelle Rose knows how to write a hit. All the elements concurring to the commercial success of a song (a relatable theme, sassy lyrics, gritty hooks) are present in Fire, enriched by her bittersweet fresh new look on a very recurring subject.
Fire anticipates Amelle Rose‘s debut album “I Prayed For Peace,” due to be released in early 2020.
We hope this single becomes the hit it deserves to be and look forward to hearing more from Amelle‘s upcoming album.
