Billie Eilish Gets Wistful On “Wish You Were Gay”
Eilish has dropped off the album’s lead single, which seems to expand on the horror-inspired aesthetic. Dark and brooding in nature, Eilish navigates the percussion production with a songwriter’s ear, a testament to her growing potential. At seventeen, she has already covered impressive ground, and the future is at her feet.
Eilish has released another offering from the project. This one, titled “Wish You Were Gay,” finds her getting a little wistful over a slow-burning, lush instrumental. Her vocals shine as she paints a picture of doomed romance, pining for an unconventional solution.
Backed by haunting visuals, the minimalist track finds a black-eyed Billie staring deadpan from beneath a bed, the signature stomping ground for creatures of the night. Vocally, she knows when to pull back, and thankfully her producers mirror her example
