Boston’s @GillianHeidi returns with largely acoustic, emotional alt.pop of “burnout”

GILLIAN HEIDI, “burnout”

“burnout” is a quiet, emotional alt.pop song that recalls someone who seems to be disenchanted, aimless, and distanced from the people who care about her the most.  You’ve already got to know Boston teen singer/songwriter Gillian Heidi through my blog posts last year about her songs “desperate” and “high”.  While my past comparisons have touched on everyone from Billie Eilish through to Joan Osborne, it’s clear she has actually been innovative within the pop realm that has recently brought the charts back to life with Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license”.  “burnout” has a similar uncertain theme to it, with the protagonist gazing at the stars to ponder what’s to come.  Gillian’s vocal in “burnout” is particularly strong and affecting, always a beneficial tell-tale sign when in a minimal, sombre arrangement.
