Cristina Hart releases cathartic new single “Never Be Her”
Cristina Hart hasn’t had it easy at all over the past year. She’s had to take time off to deal with her mental health, as well as actually fall back in love with making and playing music, however, she’s back and ready to share new material, marking a completely new era. The first single from her upcoming project ‘online therapy’, ‘Never Be Her’ is the perfect choice for a comeback, a pop anthem met alt-rock sensibilities.
The track features hard-hitting drums, overdrive soaked guitars and synths that ebb and flow in between. Her vocals are irresistible, raw and glimmer with personality. Comparable to the likes of Olivia Rodrigo and Tate McRae, ‘Never Be Her’ showcases unbelievably catchy melodies that are sure to get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Cristina explores jealousy, grief, anxiety and mental health with an assertive confidence, tapping into the most vulnerable and honest side of herself.
Talking further about the new single, Cristina Hart shares:
“‘Never Be Her’ is my most passive aggressive song. It’s about falling into that rabbit hole of comparing yourself to people on the internet - like your ex’s new girlfriend - and putting them on a pedestal while knowing virtually nothing about them (other than the highlights we all handpick to share). It's about feeling that unchecked, toxic jealousy sitting within you and nitpicking everything about yourself against what you think you should be. It’s a bitter, toxic one which highlights how - when you’re jealous of someone - they’re not really the problem and we probably need to work on ourselves.”
A month before its release, the new track has had 1M+ combined views on TikTok, Instagram and more, resulting in 1,000 new followers on Spotify. Cristina Hart has worked with the likes of Matt Wills, Woody (Bastille) and Saltwives (Zayn Malik, Jason Derulo, Blackpink) as well as writing for other artists including Kenzie, Arthur Hill, Emie Nathan and Caity Baser.
