Billie Eilish is in a class of her own. If you are not living under the rock, you are probably familiar with the seventeen-year-prodigy and her far-reaching talent. She is the current internet sensation of a new style of music that is resonating with millions. Nevertheless, the brighter the star, the darker the story. Behind her enormous stardom lie some shivering underlying reasons that we seldom know.
However, the star finally broke the wall of silence on her choice of the most dreadful and depressing genres of the era. Her emotional gaze and the subtle dark vibes are not just for the sake of maintaining the ‘gothic aesthetics’. The star actually has a legitimate reason behind which will make you appreciate whatever she has gone through at such an early age.
Billie Eilish breaks down her music genre
One of the major class acts of the Ocean Eyes singer is that she is never afraid to be herself. Even if it raised some eyebrows, the star stuck to her depressingly playful songs that are redefining the pop era. Starring in Audibles’ Origins, Eilish revealed why her songs all have a similar horrific and melancholic vibe to them. According to her, “becoming familiar with pain is the key” to navigating life. “I have this kind of addiction to empathy,” said Ellish talking about how emotional pain has been her solo driving force so far.
She believes that all her intimate sentiments act as empowering fuel to the flames of her passion that she pours out through her voice. Billie Eilish also revealed how weird it was for her during her initial years as a singer. It was quite “jarring” for her to deal with people who categorized her music as sad and depressing. She also weighed on how her music was comparatively nothing before the amount of misery songs by The Beatles and Lana Del Rey imparted.
Nevertheless, the singer stuck to her ideologies and revealed all her songs are honest interpretations of her life. All of them were aimed at nothing but letting the sadness of life sink in instead of desperately fighting it away. She finds strength in consuming vulnerable emotions and reflects the same sense of being understood in her songs.
