Molly Kate Kestner's "It's You" Is About As Heartfelt As It Gets
As soon as you hear the first notes sung by Molly Kate Kestner you are going to think "she's underrated." Kestner has gifted our ears a piano ballad of a song called "It's You" and it maybe has the ability to cause you to shed a tear or two.
On the track, Molly can be quoted as saying:
“It’s never easy breaking up with someone, so most of us tend to use cliche phrases to soften the blow. Lines like ‘I just need some time to work on myself’ or ‘It’s not you… it’s me.’ But the truth is, if you’re breaking up with someone, there’s a greater reason. And we’re usually thinking, ‘It’s NOT me, it’s YOU.’ So this song is about coming clean, cutting ties, and letting go of the fear of hurting someone. There is something incredibly empowering about simply being honest about how you feel.”
The breakup subject is always a tough one to face as a human in general and even more so creatively in wanted to stand out. Kestner hits the nail on the head with this meaning behind the Ryan Tedder-produced song and simultaneously gives a sense of inspiration through the beautiful music.
