Twenty-year-old singer-songwriter, Melanie Baker isn’t afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. Inspired by great songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Billy Joel, Baker’s heartfelt and direct lyricism capture themes such as falling in and out of love, self-reflection, the anxieties of modern life and experiencing heartbreak for the first time.
Broken is the first single from Melanie Baker’s upcoming EP and it is a wonderful piece of music. I really like the unique melodic construction. Besides, the delicate vocals are amazing. Furthermore, I also adore the dynamic chorus!
Lyrically, Baker knows to impress. The song comes after her first major break-up and she expresses her feelings with relatable yet poignant lyrics such as the opening line “we buried our heads under the sand again, now we don’t talk like we used to.”
You can say without any doubt that Baker has made modern art, Broken is a masterpiece. Start streaming it as soon as possible!
