So far reviews on the song’s have been positive. Two Tahoma high school students have been interviewed regarding their thoughts on the album. Senior Aditi Rana, claimed that the new album “fits her style very well and gives off Lizzie Grant vibes. I expect to see very deep lyrics and I’m looking forward to a potential tour. Lana’s a great performer and she hasn’t had the chance to perform in a while.” Similarly, Alex Harbrold, another senior at Tahoma High School, has stated that they’re favorite is “A&W out of the two songs because I love the lyrics in the song. Lana is one of the greatest lyricists of our generation. And I love the instrumentals in the other single, it feels very relaxing and cutesy. Overall I’m really excited to see what the new era is entailing, but I’m hoping to see more of Lana’s pop side –like kinda born to die vibes.”
