Reviewing “Numb Little Bug” by Em Beihold Written by Jason Greiner
I never heard of musical artist Em Beihold let alone her song “Numb Little Bug” until it came on my car’s Sirius radio a couple of days ago. When I saw the title, I thought to myself, “that’s strange” and that it sounded more like an odd name of a band than a song. After all, the names of bands seem to be getting stranger and stranger these days.
But within about 30 seconds into the song, I found myself intrigued. Beihold comes at the listener with an extremely catchy vibe infused with a sense of fun even though the lyrics are a bit deep. It is a far cry from much of today’s pop tracks that seem to be overproduced and somewhat hollow.
Lyrics from the chorus like “Do you ever get a little bit tired of life? Like you’re not really happy but you don’t wanna die Like you’re hangin’ by a thread but you gotta survive,” mix the background music having a light and a rather energetic feeling with some serious introspective thought.
The vocals are solid. Sure, she’s no queen of vocal range, but they’re not bad at all. She also sounds a bit older or more well-trained in her singing than you might expect of someone only 23 years old. If this is any indication of her future releases, I look forward to seeing what this talented young lady will do in her career. Check out more of her work right here.
