Move over punk rockers, Vanessa Silberman’s theatrical, rebellious new track “Don’t” released on August 9, 2019 will impress you. She can thrash it and bash it. No pretty melodies for her. She’s into the rock of the roll and the rawness of big emotion. Don’t let your ears be the only guide; she’s a super electrified performer too and continues to help others in their music careers.
Silberman says the song is about “having nothing holding you back and letting yourself go, just ultimate purity.” The artist continues to explain: “I wrote the lyrics actually when I was just starting to really understand the music business years ago and at the time I just felt so embarrassed by people’s reasons for what would drive them – money, fame, fake friends…just very not from the heart and the lyrics just kind of poured out of me.”
Rather than writing a story of careful thought with clear visual images the song makes you feel mentally provoked, which stands out lyrically: “I feel it in my marrow I’m a burden to my sorrow.” In a passionate frenzy, she acts out her songs like you’ve never seen before cause she gets down and writhes on the floor.
