Sertari - "Teardrops"

Sertari presents her latest single "Teardrops"

"Teardrops" is an upbeat and danceable take on a very sentimental subject. The lyrics focus on a story of loss and the challenge of dealing with loss, but the music is very hopeful and uplifting. A solid four-on-the-floor drum beats keeps this tune in the pop realm. In fact, if it weren't for the somewhat saddening subject matter of the lyrics, I could see the song being bumped in the club. Supple piano arpeggios carry the main melodic content of the song's instrumentation with compliments from a full rock outfit. The guitar wails in and out with a nice overdriven lick here and there. The drums are big and full with prominent rolls through the verse and a nice down-tempo breakdown through the chorus. Soaring vocals from Sertari are the main feature of the song. She carries the songs well through the verses with a solo vocal track, but then we get gigantic layer vocal arrangements later as the song progresses into the choruses. Overall, the production value of the song is unquestionably well done. The narrative is beautiful and encouraging to anyone who knows what it's like to deal with the loss of a loved one.
