When you’re younger, love is this exciting, thrilling thing. It’s new and fun and you don’t really understand what it all means. But as you get older, you learn about heartbreak and loss, and eventually you come to understand that love isn’t always as cool as you thought it was back then.
Darian June’s single, Love Ain’t As Cool, tackles this topic head-on. The lyrics will probably resonate with you due to their relatability. They’re also simple to understand, which makes them even more powerful.
The singer’s voice is polished and sleek, with a strong sense of technical accuracy. This can be heard most clearly in the higher registers, where her notes are sparkling.
The song has a similar sonic quality to some of the great indie pop tracks of the mid 2010s, and it provides a hint of nostalgia with of course, a Darian June electro-pop twist. Whether it’s the killer groove between the drums and guitar or the catchy melody line, there’s something for everyone in Love Ain’t As Cool.
