TRACK REVIEW: Richie Harrison – Oh No! | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

Oh No! is described as “a haunting and introspective song that captures the raw emotions and internal battles faced by those grappling with mental health issues.” Richie Harrison manages to take this concept and wrings a strong melodic thread throughout the song that does possess darker lyrics, but chooses to focus on giving an honest and hopeful rendition of the immediate struggles. Commenting on the terror of paranoia and hallucinations, needing reassurance either way. It is stark and frightening to consider.

Ultimately though, the building instrumentation and soaring vocals, accompanied by a strong guitar riff, add a poignancy and a cathartic feeling to the battles described that will resonate with many, as well as finding a creative, catchy outlet to address them.
