song: "Driving Me Crazy" - Citris
It's no secret that Valentine's Day can bring out a lot of feelings, especially when it comes to past love. Citris is reclaiming that narrative and finding solace in a love that's long over on "Driving Me Crazy". The single features two distinct ideals — the first is a breezy, seemingly light acoustic start that has vocalist Angelina Torreano seemingly unbothered by the one who loves her, but then the feelings shift, coming with a realization that the one you care for isn't all they're cracked up to be. The playful acoustic picking turns to an all out assault of grungy, noise, as Torreano cries out against someone who is writing "love songs" and suffocating them, "driving me crazy" with lies and inconsistencies. As she explained in an essay on the song: “Driving me Crazy’ is about the attack on your ego and self-esteem after experiencing rejection from a partner. “It's also about having a definitive ending but still feeling unresolved. It's a very classic theme of the death of romance and how unsettling it can be and how there are so many questions left unanswered." Yeah, this one is for all the lonely hearts.
