Halsey, “Without Me”
What a great sounding record. There’s a lot going on here without things sounded cluttered. Helping that is the way musical elements weave in and out of the song. I’m picking up some subtle auto-tune on Halsey’s vocals—not to retune them, but to throw them a little off-kilter, to play into the lyric’s themes physical and emotional distance. And it’s got the kind of chorus you ride as far as you can.
