We Love 'Pain' By Christine Storm, Here's Why

Singer and artist Christine Storm takes on the depths of relationship turmoil, regret and heartache with this latest single Pain. The song builds up slowly, beginning with the purity of an acoustic riff, steadily then introducing the two singers to begin this back and forth performance between perspectives and ideas. The verses see the rhyme-scheme overbear a little at first, but musically and indeed performance-wise the whole thing starts to evolve fairly quickly afterwards. The quietness of those near-whispered opening vocals reveals itself to be a fitting building block in preparation for the contrast and impact of later on.

The song’s hook presents a mighty moment of emotion and boldness – the weight and volume of the song intensifies and the performances reflect well the lyrical resolve and the longing in that leading question.

By the time the song has finished, that entrancing acoustic riff has managed to linger in your mind, and both vocalists have worked in unison to make certain the song’s hook will be easily recognized the next time around. In terms of the style, there’s a fairly classic, pop-ballad vibe to the single. You can imagine the live show as this full-band offering, or you can see it as a purely acoustic delivery that thrives on the strength of the vocals. Overall, it’s clear that there’s plenty of opportunity for Pain to stand out. Download the single via iTunes. Find & follow Christine Storm on Facebook & Twitter or visit her Website.

Ariana Grande Reunites *NSYNC, Brings Out Diddy & More During Her Epic Coachella Headlining Set

At 10:39 p.m., Ariana Grande’s vocals belted out “Raindrops (An Angel Cried)” from offstage. Consider it her version of, “If you can hear me, clap twice.” She had the crowd’s full attention from the first note.  

Once she stepped onstage for her highly-anticipated headlining set on the third and final day of Coachella (April 14), she moved immediately into a girl-powered version of The Last Supper for “God Is A Woman” (not too dissimilar from her MTV Video Music Awards version last year) off Sweetener before seamlessly moving into Thank U, Next track “Bad Idea.” The swift transition illustrated just how intertwined, and fluid, the two releases are -- and her star-powered delivery made it clear that her set was, if nothing more, a triumphant celebration of her continuous professional winning streak as of late.
