“NOSEDIVE” is about the defenseless feeling of repeated losses, due to emotional manipulation. Love is vulnerable, and ameliarose perfectly encapsulates how risky it can be to become attached to someone who is clearly unwell. At just nineteen years old, she evokes this tragic falling-out in the chorus lyrics; “I saw my own reflection in the back of the necklace you gave me. I looked so distorted, you asked ‘what’s so important about all this anyway?’”. Through the song, we follow her journey to speak up for herself, take ownership of her body, and leave the audience aching for more.ameliarose
ameliarose’s “NOSEDIVE” is all about emotions and you can hear it everywhere: the vocals, the lyrics, the melody, the volume. The song starts off soft with a beautiful, light piano melody. The vocals also start off with dulcet tones. But, that all changed by the midpoint of the song as ameliarose discards the gentle facade for bare emotions. Vigorous vocals cry out in melody, showing all sorts of emotions in each note with elevated volumes. How the singer-songwriter performs this is so incredible as ameliarose’s vocals are full of power and flair.
Although there is a showcase of two diverse types of emotions in “NOSEDIVE”, it is important to listen for the rawness and realness in the vocals, the lyrics, and even in the instrumentation. The vocals are the main star of this song as they drive the mood and tell the lyrics’ story with so much passion. But, don’t forgot to listen for the instrumentation as it helps the vocals out and creates a soothing atmosphere with piano melodies mixed in with electronic ones.
