As we all know, Scandinavian pop has always been a hallmark of sonic excellence. Swedish singer-songwriter Gabby Wilson is about to raise the bar and our spirits with her sparkling debut confection, Hug it Out.
The song sounds so good. I like the infectious dance beats. Besides, the vocals are outstanding. Furthermore, I’m also a fan of the solid hooks and melodies.
Lyrically, Wilson delivers. She has an impressive writing style. Every line in the song is golden.
The forerunner for her EP, Hug it Out arose after a finding herself in a relationship that was hanging by a thread: “Trust started to lack, communication started to get shorter and shorter, with the pressure of taking the relationship to the next level rather than enjoying the here and now. We were missing a sense of fun and playfulness. It felt like the only time my boyfriend and I didn’t fight was when we were sleeping. That was the time when we could hold each other and feel close. It’s impossible to get to that vulnerable place in your everyday life.”
Wilson wears her heart on her sleeve, and she wears her vulnerabilities as strength – and let it be said, she wears them well.
The song deserves 5 stars. It’s a masterpiece in my opinion.
