The loneliness that follows a breakup is perhaps one of the worst feelings in the world. Suddenly without the person that’s been by your side for weeks, months, or even years, you don’t know what to do with yourself. “The Quiet” perfectly captures the anger you feel at this point, whether it be at the person, the situation itself, or the world in general. Like something straight out of the early 2000s punk scene, the track features heavy guitar and a beat that you have to stop yourself from headbanging to.
Singing about a breakup with an angry, almost empowered sound is a fascinating contrast to the usual pitiful piano ballad. It’s refreshing to see the struggle being worked through with anger as opposed to sadness. And while either way is valid, sometimes it feels good to throw on a cathartic track and scream it out.
