Billie Eilish is one of the newest, yet one of the most popular singer-songwriters in America. She is known not only for her young age of only seventeen, but she is known for her style of music that can be described as the new "anti-pop." I do not think I have ever listened to an artist and connected with them so well based solely on the lyrics of their song. However, Billie Eilish is the one exception. I can confidently say that Billie Eilish is my newest obsession, and I have no shame about it.
1. Billie Eilish has a voice like no other.Giphy
Billie Eilish has a voice that cannot be described. However, I can tell you that if you ever heard any of her songs, you would easily be able to distinguish her voice from others. It is almost as if her songs are so effortless, yet you are able to feel every emotion in every single lyric that she sings. I love her voice not only because of how it sounds but also because of the way that it makes me feel. Many people describe her music as the new "anti-pop" or some may even call it "depressing." However, I can play any song by Billie Eilish and feel emotions that I did not even know I had. Her voice really brings out the connection between one's body and mind.
2. I am always able to connect with the lyrics of her songs.Giphy
No matter the song, I always feel as though Billie Eilish has written her song specifically for me (crazy, I know). For example, in high-school I never liked to really go out and party with my friends, because I felt as though everyone was too drunk to even realize what was going on. I honestly felt as though people were not seeing the big picture when it came to getting too intoxicated or high. People smoking and drinking have never bothered me, however when they become unaware of their own actions when under the influence of such things that is when I become upset and annoyed. Fast-forward to listening to Billie Eilish's new album, and I find a song called "Xanny." (Stop what you are doing, go listen to the song, and then finish reading) "Xanny" is a song that describes my attitude toward partying so well. I do not want to be a "spoiler" for anyone about the song, but if you ever feel like nobody understands you, I highly recommend listening to ANY of her songs but specifically "Xanny."
3. Billie Eilish has such an "unknown" personality.Giphy
Nobody knows who Billie Eilish really is. She has so many different styles and moods that you could not possibly figure it out. However, that is why I love her. You can never be too sure or assume anything about her, because once you do... she gives you so many reasons to think otherwise. Genius!
Please, go listen to her album or actually any of her songs. I promise you will not regret it.
