ANNIE BLACKMAN – ” Souvenir “

Annie Blackman - Souvenir

New Jersey’s Annie Blackman is no newbie to the world of turning pain into lyrics, but with her latest single “Souvenir,” that pain feels less metaphorical and more concrete. As you listen to her calm voice softly sing “Separately / I’m struggling and / standing at the sink / I deserve whatever hurts / I think,” it feels like watching yourself experimenting piercing aches, so far removed from the hurt but knowing exactly what it feels like.

Perhaps this is the way she paints a picture, through comparing her body to physical objects as she expresses the feel of the touch and how badly it stings. Even the titular “Souvenir” is nothing but the aftershock of the undeniable crash. “Souvenir” is Blackman’s second single under the label Father/Daughter Records.
