80s nostalgic with a contemporary indie pop flare is Kerri Medders “Overthinking?”. Kerri Medders vocal timbre is dreamy and romantic with a certain vibrato and an ability to go between falsetto and chest voice with ease. While the lyrics are introspective and questioning the artists choices the instrumental arrangement is a quite uplifting and fun pop rock sound. If you feel like you’re in need of figuring out your life this hump day you might find yourself relating to this line in particular.
“I’m gonna make it through this hazy head of mine, give me a little time so I can figure out my life.”
I was pulled in by the way the energy shown some of the dreamy and atmospheric production choices and stuck around for the story. Check out “Overthinking?” by Kerri Medders below!
