Justine Vandergrift released her new single- Little Bird and it whisks you away with its melody into another world. The track is a mellow number that bubbles to life with this intimate quality to it. This happens only because of the delicate and meticulous concoction of the guitar and the backing sounds. This elevates her gentle yet powerful voice.
The lyrics of Little Bird are effortlessly beautifully crafted. The track begins with a simple guitar riff that gives us the first stroke of a picturesque song that is to come. The lyrics feel so intimate. It feels like Justine picked out words from every woman’s (young and old) journal. Following this, she gave them a gift they had never received before- a prompt to give in, let loose and fly. Justine’s expertise in music really stands out in little Bird with her dynamic shifts and vocal harmonies. This creates a vivid, rich and lush soundscape to dive into.
Real Women Have Curves by Patricia Cardoso is an exquisite film that is a hug to society. If you are someone who has had experiences with body shaming, this film will gently hold you. The film showcases how generational trauma gets passed on and we have the power to address it and break the pattern. In this case, it is body shaming. Little Bird would be a beautiful song as Ana gets her female family members to strip in their shop and celebrate their bodies. What a wholesome watch that would be!
Little Bird by Justine Vandergrift is a testament to her ability to create an incredibly moving number that resonates with a large audience. This is all thanks to Justine’s craftsmanship that has us invested. It’s no wonder she is gaining listeners across America.
