Have you ever been so focused on someone that you start to lose touch with reality? That’s what Hannah Robinson’s new single, Hypnotized, is all about.
The song describes the fear of loss and rejection, and the experience of being absorbed by a situation and not being able to think straight. You’re constantly thinking about a person, and dreaming of what could have been, while the other person no longer cares and wants to just walk away.
The first verse takes on the perspective of the girl and how living without him is unnatural to her. The second verse shows the boy’s perspective and expresses how he wants to move on with his life and wishes the girl would simply let him go.
If there’s one thing that Hanna wants listeners to take away from Hypnotized, it’s the importance of trying to see things from multiple sides. She notes that we often react defensively to circumstances that make us uncomfortable, without taking the time to understand why the other person might be feeling that way.
Hypnotized starts off with catchy guitar riffs and steady drums, giving it a very driving and upbeat vibe. The chorus is absolutely captivating, mainly because it offers some unexpected twists.
Hanna’s performance stands out here. She’s able to carry the emotional intensity of the song throughout its entirety. Even during the more subtle moments, her voice remains forefront in the listener’s mind. This is thanks to her distinctly unique tone.
