Kalie Shorr – “Deathbed”
Kalie Shorr makes a helluva comeback. It’s been what feels like ages since her last release, but we’re here now. That’s what matters. Flecked with indie/rock, “Deathbed” depicts a relationship gone sour. What was once a vibrant, blossoming rose plant is now fragile and hollow, leaving Shorr to scrape up the crumbling petals. “Thought I’d be holding your hand on my deathbed,” she sings. “Never thought love would die before we did / So I mourn and I cry, act like you’re not alive / To convince myself this is the end.” As is her way, Shorr cuts deep with her words until she draws blood. She’s a force to be reckoned with.
