Australian singer-songwriter Miller Roberts discusses feeling lonely and disconnected from loved ones on delicate, slow-burn offering “All Over Again,” as soothing guitar and echoing beats take us through the heartbreakingly relatable moments of loneliness that Roberts brings alive through her honest lyricism.
Written during the lockdown, the track develops as cathartic production that brings together ambient sonics with the Australian artist’s lilting vocal harmonies. Tapping into her trademark indie-folk sound, “All Over Again,” draws us in with deeply personal narrations of isolation even as it extends its intricate sonics outwards with a warmth that feels like a much-needed companion.
Crafted adeptly in a way that tugs at our heartstrings, the 24-year-old talent weaves pain and confusion after a break up, compounded by the monotony of lockdown and longing for human connection into notes of hope as she emerged later to reconnect with everything left abandoned.
Growing up surrounded by and performing music, Roberts’ affection for folk music has been slowly simmering for her entire life. Influenced by the likes Justin Vernon, Sufjan Stevens, The Paper Kites and Lucy Rose, her gentle yet bold musicality has developed as an emotive cross of acoustic folk and alternate pop.
