Single Saturdays: Silka Weil – Unsatisfied 

Candian singer Silka Weil released a new single, Unsatisfied. The story is about a conflict of emotions in a relationship.

The music is Pop. It starts with drums creating an effect of suspense and intrigue, then boldly transitions to electric guitar. The music is edgy and rhythmic. The musical styles parallel those of 70s Rock and 90s Grunge with some 2000s-style music. The song starts with musical styles that parallel Linkin Park’s 2000s hit, In the End. The introductory beats remind me of the start of the Police’s 80s single Every Breath You Take combined with an edgy style and intensity. Then at the chorus, the music parallels the rhythm of The Eagles’ 70s single, Hotel California. There are moments in the song similar to Fastball’s single, The Way, but with a slower tempo. The beat is impressive – it has an even balance of slow and fast rhythms, making it distinctive. The song has an incredible mix of musical styles.

Silka Weil’s voice is edgy and bold. She sings with great rhythm and passion. She expresses her conflict of emotions with incredible precision. She has fantastic vocals.

The lyrics are profound and expressive. The song describes conflicting emotions of passion and sadness. There’s a desire for a simple fling, yet wishes to have a deeper romantic connection. That conflict of feelings is intense. On the one hand, the woman seeks a physical relationship, but on the other, she wants something more meaningful and hesitates to go through with the moment of passion. The subject of seeking a simple moment of desire but hesitating and thinking of something more profound is rare. This song is impressive in covering this topic with openness and vulnerability. The raw emotions feel so real. The words have an incredible depth by saying very little, which is a style of writing that Silka pulled off nicely.

The single Unsatisfied is available.
