“Petals to Thorns” Review

This Is How It Feels (with Laufey)

“This Is How It Feels” is an enchanting ballad driven by Laufey’s modern jazz style supported by classical instrumental arrangements. 

The song features the back-and-forth storytelling of two artists known for their ability to capture stories of heartbreak and love in their songs. The two romantics come together as a duet to sing an elegant chorus describing how falling in love may feel.

So, this is how it feels
To fall in love with you
To always think of you
To always dream of you
Yes it hurts so much to fall in love with


D4vd shows off his ability to excel in any genre, adapting to Laufey’s Jazz style reminiscent of childhood fairytale movies.

Backstreet Girl

Another soothing love song that brings about wistful feelings in listeners. The song features a bedroom pop style with a dreamy guitar and laid–back vocals and captures a similar aesthetic as the hit single “Romantic Homicide.” If you’re a fan of the melancholic aesthetic and grainy bedroom pop love songs give “Backstreet Girl” a listen, youre bound to love it.

The Bridge

“The Bridge” closes the album with a pop-punk-esque song, showcasing d4vd genre-bending abilities. This piece boasts “heavy guitar riffs and palpable percussion” and is complemented by almost frustrated, heartbroken lyrics.
