Coping With A Breakup, in Kanina’s “LUST”

By: Zessa Ghaisani |

Kanina is an aspiring singer, lyricist, and producer based in Semarang. She is a part of Hip-Hop trio Foolish Commander, which is under HILLS collective. She recently released her debut single “LUST” on April 28, 2019.

“LUST” is a song about reminiscing over a bad breakup, how to deal with it, and the process of moving on from the breakup. Composed in a somber tune, with funky instruments and a sorrowful choral arrangement, the song showcases Kanina’s vocal ability, in which she also shows her emotions throughout the 4 minutes and 21 seconds duration of the song.

Overall, it’s a dreamy, indie-pop tune. The bridge is my favorite part, where the instruments become a bit louder than the other parts of the song and Kanina’s vocals blend in well with the background vocals and instruments.

Overall rating : 7 out of 10
