“The Girl I Used To Be” by HOL

“The Girl I Used To Be” by HOL is a nostalgic treat with hints of melancholia as the lyrics tell of someone becoming a stranger to herself. The bittersweet nature of the song is enhanced by the wonderfully-enticing vocals that truly convey the heartfelt emotion of the honest, self-reflexive lyrics. Hol clearly has a fantastic voice, a great songwriting style and the ability to create a strong melodic hook: such talent points towards a bright future with vast potential.

In Hol’s own words: “‘The Girl I Used To Know’ describes a lost girl searching for her old self. The lyrics depict her journey as she thinks she has found the one thing she is looking for – a life-long friend – only to realise that it is actually her former-self”.
