The New Zealand-born singer and songwriter Estella Dawn has just released an intelligent and catchy new single. Now that she has your attention, she may also have your girl.
The song “Steal Your Girl” begins with retro bass work and appealing melodic lifts from the vocalists and the synthesisers that surround it. Slower, reflective verses follow, leading up to the song’s final chorus, which is deceptively straightforward yet catchy and easy to remember. The story’s central yearning for and assurance in one’s own abilities are strengthened by Estella’s increasingly alluring vocals.
The new track finds a middle ground between the artist’s previous simplicity in melody and his more complex, almost electronic dance music–style production approaches. This creates a structure that is at once fluid and brisk, dropping in with a satisfying thud once the hook correctly returns.
In particular, the song’s pre-chorus raises this to a higher level by leading us through a moment of introspective, breathy quiet before the song’s dramatic climax, in which our protagonist swoops in for the take.
Estella is a master at sprinkling in surprising turns of phrase and melodic twists, making her work seem new and exciting every time. She constantly challenges the conventions of modern and classic pop by using novel and engaging narrative structures.
The “gamer-esque” bass line and the “remote vocal inflexions” in the song titled “Steal Your Girl” hint at Lady Gaga’s influence. These nuances are what make a chorus seem alive and vibrant on stage.
Since her introduction in 2020, Estella has tirelessly combined all the crucial attributes for longevity, such as talent, work ethic, excitement, accuracy, and originality. The barriers between alternative and commercial pop are crumbling under her influence.
Through the uniqueness of her music and the strength and passion of her voice, she has consistently attracted a growing global fan base with each new album and single.
Finishing off the summer with a wonderful blend of energy and seduction, “Steal Your Girl” brings yet another novel approach, keeping things familiar enough to connect but fascinating enough to strike with impact. Maintaining a balance between the comfortable and the novel in order to make an impactful point.
