Swinging back from her acclaimed 2020-track Spare Some Light, Australian singer-songwriter Justina Ward produces some activity in her discography with her new track — Be There.
Characteristically dream-pop, the song can also be categorised into the sound of Ward’s traditional indie-folk affinity. The song features Justina’s uplifting vocals that appear motivational and uplifting, accompanied early on with piano arpeggios and comfortably hushed strings. Be There is arguably a song questioning the volatility of romance and introspection about picking things up from where they have been left off before the heartbreak. Owing to its simple and attractive composition, Be There is also an exemplary bedroom-pop track, especially through the multiple offshoots in the musicality that Ward makes between the bridges and choruses. The track — optimistic and reassuring — hits at the emotional juncture between dystopia and the emergence of life which follows such events, promising the continuity of life and good faith. A very well-structured track beginning and ending faintly with its rich melodies in the middle, Be There is a very accessible and enjoyable track for any day of the week. With four songs in her discography already, how far can a possible EP be?
