People can change a lot in ten years unless we allow our pasts to define us. Which is aptly alluded to in Carly and Martina’s latest stylistically smooth Pop single “10 Years Later”.
Expect Californian sun-soaked melodies and a chorus so catchy that it might need some persuading to leave your synapses alone. But the Chicago-based duo did much more than create just another easily ingestible earworm. They used their introspective and experience to how far you can come by not letting rejection and regret shape the future. With resonant lyrics in the verses leading up to the insanely infectious countdown in the chorus “8 crazy exes, 7 big mistakes…” 10 Years Later is a track which bleeds radio-ready resonance.
The power of the Country Pop harmonies combined with the authenticity of the sentiment behind Carly and Martina’s latest release definitely isn’t something you hear every day. Especially from 17-year-old songwriters.
