Now she has recently released a new single, “ There In The Doorway.” It is a beautiful and haunting song about grief and loss. The song starts with warm guitar chords and her beautiful vocals, which are raw yet commanding. The song’s gentle, minimalist production provides the perfect backdrop for the soaring vocals, making it feel like you’re riding your bike through a field of tall grass with the clear blue sky above you. Although the music gives you such happy vibes, the lyrics are about how she cannot move on after her partner’s death and you can feel the melancholy in her voice. She has done a great job of capturing the complex emotions we feel when we lose someone we love. This juxtaposition is really interesting to me, and I think it’s what makes the song so special. This song will definitely resonate with anyone who has ever lost someone they loved. Destiny’s gorgeous voice and lyrical honesty make for a truly moving experience.
