Rainbow: Album review

RainbowThere’s something beautiful about a rainbow.

Hope.

The end of the storm.

The promise of something new.

And that can mean the promise of something new with respect to creativity – including creativity in music.

I’m a huge supporter of women and girls in music.

Singers, songwriters, composers, lyricists, producers.

Including the beautiful and creative Kesha Sebert.

Given the reports of creative oppression that Kesha had while working on past albums, listening to this album is a breath of fresh air.

I’m serious.

Rainbow celebrates creativity.

Discovery.

Adventure.

Exploration.

Music gives us the opportunity to explore creativity.

Pop.

Borderline folk.

Country vibes. Boots, is a fun, upbeat number. Kesha sings that she’s “walking on air, kickin’ [her] blues”. It’s a creative lyrics.

There’s fun, lighthearted lyrics.

Godzilla is a cute, adorable lullaby-like song. At just over two minutes, the song is short and sweet.

And there’s heartfelt lyrics.

Praying is a beautiful and inspirational ballad.

The pre-chorus and chorus portray the singer taking a stand.

‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’

Rainbow, the title track, is my favourite track on the album.

I’ve had the chorus stuck in my head for about five days after listening to it a few times.

Okay, I’m a sucker for the chorus in songs.
I’ve found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know, life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and play along with me tonight

I’d forgot how to daydream
So consumed with the wrong things
But in the dark, I realized this life is short
And deep down, I’m still a child
Playful eyes, wide and wild
I can’t lose hope, what’s left of my heart’s still made of gold.

Narrative. The singer sings of personal experience while encouraging others to not lose hope. To not stop dreaming.

Rainbow stands for inspiration.

Rainbow stands for love.

Rainbow stands for healing.
