A self-described “sad girl’s attempt at an optimistic love song,” Caroline Lazar’s “Chicago is the second single of her upcoming EP, “Honey.” As a Chicagoan I obviously had to give this song a go, and I’m glad I did. Bringing her own individuality to the ‘sad-girl-indie’ sound, Lazar’s songwriting bears a sort of cockeyed optimism with lyrics that read like a letter that never gets sent. “Chicago,” at its core, is a song about a broken heart that isn’t ready to let go. Lazar’s story-like lyrics will resonate with anyone who’s had a relationship leave them yearning for that one last day together, which- let’s face it- is pretty much everyone. The instrumentation is just the basics- rhythm guitar with simple bass and drum accompaniment- but the performance is dynamic and genuine, making this a perfect song to accompany your memories wherever they may wonder.
