Alexa Cappelli has our hearts in her hands and continues to squeeze them so tightly with the way she weaves her words into powerful poetry in her songs. ‘Someone Better’ is yet another example of her master lyricism. Not to mention the way her voice floats from note to note, filling the track with emotion that makes it seep into you like it’s your own story. If you’ve ever had to leave behind someone you love because it’s the best for you both, this one is for you.
One of our favorite things about Alexa is the way she chooses to embrace vulnerability and honesty. Her songs are transparently honest and emotionally charged – you’d be insane to not fall in love, some might say. This release shows another layer of Alexa’s honesty. While pulling on our heartstrings, Alexa sings about having to say goodbye to someone who is so good to you, but you just aren’t on the same path in life. Leaving behind someone who you have only love and admiration for is arguably harder than leaving someone you dislike or are mad at.
This release finally ends our drought of new music from Alexa. Her last release, ‘Lose Lose,’ dropped in late November of last year. And don’t get us wrong, it’s a whole bop and a half, but what can we say – we’re greedy! We always want more of what Alexa has to share with us. And ‘Someone Better’ was totally worth the wait.
‘Someone Better’ is the realization that the relationship you’re in doesn’t fit the life you’re living for. There’s nothing wrong with the other person, in fact there’s really only good. But you know the future holds more growth and love for both of you apart, rather than together. Choosing yourself is way more difficult when you aren’t mad at this person who has only ever treated you right. But moving forward, there will be a day when you meet someone somewhere who does the same and is also growing in the same direction.
