TRACK REVIEW: Caitie – Tragic | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

A lot can be determined by the opening line of a song. In this case “once upon a time” has never sounded so whimsical and equally as devastating.

Tragic, the latest single released by pop singer-songwriter Caitie, careens through the rollercoaster of a shattered teenage friendship. Dreamlike synths undercoat the sugary sweet vocals whilst moving at pace, as reminiscing has become too painful and can’t be dwelled on for long. While the chorus is catchy, upbeat and enthralling, there is a joyful sorrow, with a hint of malice.

We’re not privy to what happened, however through this fantastical atmosphere and coupled with witty writing, it begs for us to reflect on our own friendships. Bittersweet melancholic pop at its finest.
