“TOO MUCH” – The Kid LAROI, Jung Kook, and Central Cee

The Kid LAROI, Jung Kook, and Central Cee have joined forces for a true multi-national collaboration. The trio — hailing from Australia, South Korea, and the United Kingdom respectively — are arguably some of the biggest hitmakers under 30. Their distinct voices come together in the tune of the refreshing “TOO MUCH” headed by The Kid LAROI. Embodying all of the elements of a 2023 pop song, the track hits at the perfect time for the chilly autumn or, if you’re down under, in the midst of a budding spring. 

Jung Kook starts the track with smooth vocals, asking a former flame if they’d ever be up for a round two of their relationship or it was too much to handle. The Kid LAROI jumps in, in his signature rap-singing sound detailing the breakdown of the relationship. In between choruses, Central Cee slides in with his heavily accented rap verse. Though the three artists have different styles of individual music, “TOO MUCH” comes together without a hitch.

“Over The Phone” – Delilah Brao

Boston-born and raised, now Los Angeles-based, songstress Delilah Brao ushers in the heartbreak season with her new single, “Over The Phone.” Brao confided in a press release that the folk-laced indie pop song is about her own ex breaking up with her via a five-minute FaceTime call. “It’s grim. We dated for years. But, long distance sucks and the song kind of speaks for itself in that way,” she explained. “Over The Phone” begins with a distorted, muffled effect — as if Brao is singing over a phone call — and seamlessly transitions to uninterrupted audio, which highlights her crisp vocals. Brao is heart-wrenchingly blunt in the chorus as she sings, “Tell me L.A. is too far / Tell me the wait is too hard / You forget me every day when I’m a coast away.” “Over The Phone” is cathartic and delicate, quite similar to a breakup.

Delilah Brao will continue to tackle heartbreak, long-distance relationships, and new beginnings in her debut EP, Since You’re In New York. Make sure to follow her on her socials to stay up-to-date with her future releases!
