CEARA CAVALIERI, “Radio Silence”
To counter a pop market that is led by Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo, with far too many similar singer/songwriters out there that have followed in their steps, it’s refreshing to hear Ceara Cavalieri and her new bop “Radio Silence”. Following a handful of initial singles, “Radio Silence” is an Avril Lavigne-styled post-relationship song about being ghosted after an eight month courtship. This kind of pop-rock mix for women doesn’t surface too often, and even Avril herself has dug out a new path for the style that gave her success 20 years ago with her recent releases. “Radio Silence” is sharply produced and Ceara, a recent UCLA grad, can fashion relatable lyrics out of a painful situation against a fun, exuberant backdrop that will sound fab in live performance.
