Montreal’s Shades Lawrence is an artist who prides herself on her heart-wrenching lyrics and sharp delivery. Her newest single, “Other Side,” is a perfect example of this attention to detail; despite its refined and polished sonic appearance, the song was recorded rather quickly, but the emotion behind the production is clear and hits hard.
“‘Other Side,’ was written very fast, with emotion as the foundation,” Shades Lawrence shares. “I’m happy it hits so hard on the production side, and hits in the heart, lyrically.”
The production is clean and features professionally delivered cadence that does an excellent job at uplifting the narrative. Shades Lawrence’s story tells a tale of the oceans that can exist between people who care for each other. “Other Side” alludes to the issues that may arise when you focus too hard on something and the themes of unrequited love that comes with a ride-or-die partner.
