Acoustic-led pop duo, Surfaces, has released an electronic-spiked pop ballad about not wanting to be someone’s second choice.
Aptly called “Next Thing (Loverboy),” the guitar-work sets the scene from the beginning in terms of the emotion behind the song. It’s bright and clear but has a slightly melancholic feel to it, which perfectly encapsulates the general ambiance of the intimate storytelling behind the song. The smooth, easy vocals pull everything together neatly, making this a Summery, light, beach day track about standing strong in your self-worth and not settling for anything less than you deserve.
Lyrics that stand out:
“I don’t wanna be your loverboy
If you don’t understand me
I don’t wanna be your second choice
Or your Plan B”
I think this is a feeling everyone can relate to at some point in their lives. I hope it reminds you to put yourself first. <3
