Zara Larsson could not be any further away from ruining our lives with her new album Poster Girl.
Showing us her independent attitude and spreading her feel-good energy, there is no wonder every girl wants her as their best friend. This album is not only filled with your classic pop songs about the love life that shaped them into the woman they are today, but it is also fuelled with confident infused lyrics, fun, summery atmospheres and high energy chorus ready to get any party going, even if it’s just for yourself.
Kicking off this all-singing, all-dancing party for one is Love Me Land; a track ready to unite all girls so they can rule the world. The bass-heavy sections not only bring the song to life but it also pushes us into a determined state, influencing us to show everyone who’s boss.
This is actually a common feature throughout a lot of the songs. Need Someone may start off as a piano ballad but as soon as the bass kicks in quite early on, the song does a complete somersault and is turned into a girl-boss anthem. Showing that you shouldn’t be sad for too long before you pick yourself up and remember who you are. Right Here juggles between a moderate electro style and prominent bass, ready to keep the party going as the chorus makes you want to do nothing less but get up and dance.
The only track on this album that features another artist is Talk About Love with Young Thugs and is one that definitely stands out. Young Thugs section breaks up the song perfectly and as the middle part breaks down, the final chorus sounds even bigger and better than before. This is definitely a track to keep on repeat and will lift your spirits.
However, not all these tracks are summer style party bangers, there are some different tracks that bring the diversity to keep this album entertaining. FFF holds a sexier vibe as Larsson sings about her desire to escape the friend-zone, whilst Look What You’ve Done hints at a Latin/Spanish atmosphere as she shows us you don’t need other people to be happy. Stick With You is more acoustic and really shows off her vocal strength and capabilities.
Overall, Poster Girl by Zara Larsson is great to get you in the summery mood whilst picking you up to remember that independency is a great trait to always carry.
