"Symptoms" - Laura Rizzotto |Review

Laura Rizzotto's "Symptoms" embarks on a poignant journey of self-discovery and healing in the aftermath of heartbreak. Drawing comparisons to the mellowed tones of Sabrina Carpenter, this adult contemporary and singer-songwriter track seamlessly blends sweet, catchy melodies with razor-sharp lyrics, crafting a narrative that parallels the delicate process of performing open-heart surgery on oneself.

"Symptoms" pays homage to Rizzotto's Brazilian cultural heritage by seamlessly integrating touches of Brazilian music into its production. These cultural nuances, combined with live instrumentation, imbue the song with an extra layer of depth and sophistication, creating a truly unique and unforgettable musical experience.

The song's emotional depth is further enriched by Rizzotto's mesmerizing performance in the accompanying music video. As a former Eurovision star with a background in dance, her movements add a layer of visual poetry, enhancing the song's profound message of resilience and renewal. Choreographed by the talented Marissa Heart, the video becomes a captivating visual representation of the song's themes, elevating storytelling to new heights.
