Edie Yvonne on Her Latest Anthem ’15 (When I Leave)’ and Beyond

Edie Yvonne is a new artist who recently released her new single “15 (When I Leave)” which is a raw, emotional banger about being a teenager. Following in the footsteps of Green Day and Blink 182, the track combines raw guitars, punchy drums and Yvonne’s strong voice to deliver a new yet familiar two and a half minutes of pure punk-pop emotion.

The lyrics are quite descriptive of the melancholic experience of severing the ties with home and familiarity, with lines like ‘I’m leaving. I know it’s not your fault. You never cared at all. At least I tell myself, so it hurts less, when I leave. ’ It’s raw and real in the way it portrays the human mechanisms of dealing with emotional distress.

Yvonne’s vocal performance is the focal point and she articulates both fragility and fierce power perfectly right in the feels. When she sings ‘I know you can’t hear me screaming out’ as the music increases to the climax, it can be powerful and heart-wrenching.

The production is polished but raw, the hooks are infectious, and the vibes are undeniably pop punk, which makes it simultaneously new and nostalgic. In such a short space of time, “15 (When I Leave)” encapsulates the desperation and chaos of youth. It is one moment of freedom and a clear signal of Yvonne’s potentiality.
