It seems like these days,
some of Hollywood’s hottest talents are just belting out impersonal tunes
written by someone whose job is to write lyrics about teenage emotion.
Which is why we’re super
excited about Allison Weiss, the
upcoming indie rock goddess who’s behind the voice and the lyrics of her
upcoming second album, Say What You Mean. We love Taylor
Swift (and her tunes!), but it’s awesome to have a fresh face on the scene of
girl singer-songwriters. We snagged an early listen of her sophomore album and
are giving you a look at some of our fave tunes before they hit April 16. Check it out below.
“Making It Up”
This tune is all about the
questions that reel through your head after a break up. Allison encompasses the
way a real girl feels—mainly because she wrote the lyrics herself. We
especially love the catchy electronic beat that soars through the chorus. There
are also plenty of awesome guitar riffs and drum beats, giving us a
dance-worthy indie rock vibe.
This upbeat jam is Allison’s
way of expressing that her desires have changed and she’s confused about her
current relationship. She says, “It’s not what I want anymore, I think it’s the
endings that I hate.” We all know how crazy teenage love can be, and Allison
captures all of the emotions beautifully.
We could just see ourselves
listening to this song when we’re angry or on a run—it’s just perfect for
pumping us up. It opens with really energetic guitar beat before Allison’s voice
breaks in with, “Lately, when I wake up all the numbers on my clock are new to
me, I gotta get more sleep.”
“Wait For Me”
This song tones things down
a bit and goes for a calmer and sweeter vibe. Allison croons over an acoustic
guitar saying, “I’m back to the basics, I’m waiting for signs, praying for
patience, falling behind.” When the chorus hits, Allison’s voice is framed by
gorgeous violins swelling with emotion. This honest and real ballad really
rounds out the album, making it the perfect thing to listen to no matter what
mood you’re in.
