Herine’s new single, Cigarettes & Promises, is about the kind of relationship where you’re constantly on your toes, never knowing what’s going to happen next. But you stick around because, deep down, you believe there’s still a chance for things to work out.
You tell yourself it’s not so bad. After all, you’ve been through worse. But the truth is, this relationship is slowly draining you. The fighting, the drama, the endless cycle of breaking up and getting back together—it’s taking its toll on you both mentally and emotionally.
At the end of the day, it’s important that you’re happy. So if your partner is incapable of meeting your expectations, you should walk away. You’ll be doing yourself a favor by doing it.
With simple, elegant production and Herine’s soothing singing, Cigarettes & Promises starts off quite harmoniously. But as the song progresses, the music becomes louder, and Herine’s voice becomes more strained, reflecting the emotional roller coaster that’s a toxic relationship.
