Bittersweethearts – Empty
“Empty” by LA quartet Bittersweethearts is about a final, no return breakup. But there is no bitterness in this upbeat, joyful indie rock track that does not shy away from 80s-style synths and a guitar solo.
Singer and songwriter Zoe Infante shares the song’s inspiration:
“I was in a failing relationship that was so draining, People in life can have that effect on you and it’s hard to see it until you reach a breaking point. This song is about finally realizing that person was not good for me. I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that.”
Guitarist Alyssa Robertson adds:
“Modern-day society holds an unrealistic view of women. A woman has to believe everything is great with a smile on her face when the guy isn’t pulling his weight. Sooner or later, something gives, and you have the realization that you can transform a situation for the better if you just get out. As hard as it may seem in that moment, the reward of being free of toxicity is so worth it.”
