Singer and songwriter Kelsie Kimberlin takes things back to the bare essentials with this heartfelt, piano-led pop single of personal depth and infectious melodic progression.
Leading with breathy vocals and a clear sense of rising anticipation, the opening verse sees an outpouring of story, with a simple two-note tune for the most part, as things build towards a bold and beautifully melancholic hook.
At this point, the entire song elevates itself distinctly – the listener is thrown into heavy pop territory with a meaningful yet memorable moment of addictive change.
Openly dealing with the struggle of depression, relationship toxicity and turmoil, Right Place Wrong Time fuses poetry and personal anecdote for a powerfully moving look at the reality and complex ache of love.
The song is quite stunning, increasingly so as it progresses with this mellow yet mighty march of a rhythm and repeating sentiment. That title lingers with you long after listening, and Kelsie’s willingness to be honest and vulnerable lasts with it.
Wonderful. I look forward to hearing more.
