Published Aug 12, 2019Olivia Lane has the pop-country elements to aspire to be the next Taylor Swift. Her melodies blend country and pop with the ease of Swift's songwriting, guitar strumming and soft-spoken vocals. The Texas native's "So Good It Hurts" is modern pop that carries vocal riffs like Little Big Town. The powerful vocal melody on "The Cape" carries a strong message about growing up without growing old, which shares similar sentiments about learning about yourself on "Not Know."
Although the lyrics in the chorus to "Friends Don't" are eerily similar to Maddie and Tae's song of the same name, the title track, about wanting a real relationship, is charmingly written. "Let It Hurt," is a misstep that starts with an electronic drum snare that distracts from an emotional country ballad. (Big Spark)
