I Hope That She Could Find a Way To Love You

“First Date” by Abi Muir is the fourth single from this young artist, delivering fresh new tones, maturing from the wistful, dreaminess of her debut single heebiejeebies (2019), released when she was only 15 years old, into a high energy, pumping dance track with subtle teenage sarcasm hidden in the lyrics.

About the song

The listener will immediately get hooked from beat one with Abi’s sweet and captivating vocals. These vocals might remind listeners of Ariana Grande as they are high, sweet, pure, and has a ring to it. The sweetness vocals of the Australian singer-songwriter are so alluring that they stick to each word like honey. These vocals are a pivotal key to the song’s catchiness and moving the song along.

But, it isn’t just the vocals that what makes “First Date” so catchy. The other factor is in the strong beat. This is found within the clapping, the piano, and the synthesizers. But, this strong beat is super important as it makes it to easy to dance along to the song: either in a club setting or dancing while listening to the song on the subway. The strong beat is articulated very really well in “First Date” throughout the different instrumentations to make the song feel like a dance tune.

There is sort of a dual personality with “First Date”. There is a sweet side with Abi’s vocals, especially during the chorus. But, there is also a dark side with the instrumentation, especially during the interludes. However, these two opposites mesh together really well as none really overpower each other. Instead, each side has their own moments to shine.

Final Thoughts

“First Date” by Abi Muir is such a catchy tune with its strong dance beats and the sweet vocals provided by Abi Muir. The song has a sweet side, represented by Abi’s vocals, and a dark side, represented by the instrumentation, that really meshes well. If you are looking for a catchy dance tune for your week with sweet vocals and a strong dance beat, then you must check out “First Date”!
