KRYSTA YOUNGS SHINES MENTAL HEALTH SPOTLIGHT WITH NEW SINGLE “MENTAL BREAKDOWN”
Sensational songwriter Kyrsta Youngs brings more attention to the fight against mental health in an all-new powerful pop song “Mental Breakdown.” Weiros’ production more than matches the melancholic vibe of the track and offers an engaging progression throughout.
A simple yet effective piano arpeggio pattern begins the song, soon joined by Young’s dynamic, high-pitched pop vocals. Syncopated synths, a sparkling mix of percussion, and a steady 4-beat clap all lead the song to its electro-house chorus that introduces choppy vocals, melodic trumpets, and distorted 808s.
Young’s prolific songwriting ability shone through the majority of this track. In a catchy and unabashedly honest way, she episodically guides the listener through a boiling mind, dealing with a toxic relationship and continually changing moods. Accompanied by a basic yet insightful music video, this artwork says exactly what it says in the title.
The talented writer explains the track from her point of view, “Mental Breakdown” is a song about feeling all the emotions that come with loving someone who isn’t right for you. It’s the realization that love has its own life, it breaks you down and spits you out…but only if you let it.
In previous years, Youngs wrote hits with the likes of BTS, Marshmello, TXT, Philip Lawrence, Evan Bogart, JR Rotem, Melanie Fontana, Marty James, Anthony Evans, Kim Viera, Netta, Stray Kids, Wengie, Disco Fries , BTS, Taeyeon, Oh My Girl, Rania, Navi, Luna Snow, SUHO, Twice, Boa, Busters and Girlkind. These monumental milestones will no doubt be surpassed if she continues to release tracks like “Mental Breakdown.”
