Halsey | Graveyard | Single Review
Rating: Thumbs Up
As the newest single from her upcoming album Manic, singer/songwriter Halsey’s “Graveyard” is a return to her roots. The song finds her expressing her strong devotion to a relationship that everyone, including the singer herself, knows to be inappropriate and dangerous. Produced by musician Jon Bellion, the single is a near-perfect mix of the dark pop of Halsey’s debut, and the more mainstream melodies of her second album. It creates a mix of both excitement and dread with low keyboard, staccato clapping, and gentle guitar all layered beneath Halsey’s distinctive voice that both belts the ballad at points, while nearly whispering little revelations at others.
