It’s been a while since we’ve had some new music to review, but we’ve finally got some in the form of Lizzie’s latest single “Tiptoe”.
Since we last reviewed Lizzie, she’s been going from strength to strength, showcasing her talent overseas performing in Canada and Spain just to name a few. And now she’s back with a brand new track!
The song starts with the distant sound of a piano playing a really nice and already catchy chord progression. After a couple of seconds, we hear Lizzie come into the track and start us off with the title of the track “tiptoe, got to be quiet”. It seems to me that “tiptoe” is a Halloween themed song, but what I like is it’s not the usual Halloween song which is all about ghosts and the undead. It still sticks to Lizzie’s roots of pop and catchy hooks.
There’s also a mention of “got to run as fast as you can, don’t let him get to you. Keep running and running, there’s no turning back”. I’m definitely getting a Halloween vibe! But again, it can’t be compared to a song like ‘Thriller’. Its much more lighter, it’s more modern, but has the same catchy hook to it. What I also love about this line is how it could be perceived as two different meanings. We’ve talked about the Halloween theme, so it could be Lizzie warning you to run away from a ghost or ghoul. However, it also feels like Lizzie is having some sort of internal dialogue, telling herself not to look back and keep moving forward, away from this person. Almost as if it’s an ex partner, or just someone who she knows isn’t good for her. She’s trying to stick to her guns and leave this person behind for her own good. Really great writing in my opinion.
Another great song in the discography of Lizzie, who continues to go from strength to strength, and is firmly knocking on the door of the big time.
Nice work Lizzie, keep up the good work!
