The stomachache that comes from both fear of loneliness and butterflies soaring from seeing someone that caught your attention is captured through the lustrous vibe in Billie Fitz’s “Skipped a Beat.”
Hailing from Park Ridge is the emerging musician Billie Fitz, who is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter. His talents aren’t as young as his age. You can hear his musical aspirations, delicate sensations, and composing skills in his latest single, “Skipped a Beat.”
The singles start with an upbeat intro of a dreamy, uplifting fusion of guitar, bass, synthesizer, and drums. You’ll find yourself nodding your head and swaying a little just from this opening. Billie Fitz’s vocals are as bright as the instrumentation, with a silky tone and an emotional timbre. His heartfelt storytelling paints the scene he’s narrating in your head.
The euphoric feeling that comes from the well-written, played, and placed rhythms carries on for the rest of the song. It has a melancholic flavor, though, offering a vulnerable, sincere side of the artist. Delivering both excitement and loneliness through all of the elements demonstrates how clever Billie is. He managed to create a vivid atmosphere accompanied by genuine sensations.
“Skipped a Beat” is the second single of the debut album, “Windowpane” that is set to be released on November 7th. With such a smooth, enriched introduction, I can’t wait to hear what it holds!
