Singer-songwriter Billie Eilish’s debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go?” is here and it embodies her beautifully odd yet chilling style perfectly!

The project opens up with Eilish playfully introducing the album in a conversation about taking out her invisalign. The first song, “bad guy,” starts off with a low driven bass in an obvious contrast to the goofy lighthearted introduction.

The following songs capture her smooth vocals with very different sounds in each. The album takes you from mellow to hard then mellow again, much like a roller coaster.

After “you should see me in a crown,” the songs aren’t as driven and are composed of softer instruments. “Wish you were gay” showcases vintage Billie Eilish as she takes you along a song in which she speaks of heartbreak by wishing someone was gay so that there would be a less painful reason for their turn down.

“Bury a friend” takes fans back to that dark hard bass feel as she asks us in the most chilling way, “When we all fall asleep where do we go?’’

The next three songs, “ilomilo,” “listen before i go” and “i love you” go soft again with “i love you” hitting the feels. In this song, she uses her voice to waken up the sadness in your heart when she says, “I love you, I don’t want to, but I love you.”

The last track on the album is “goodbye,” and much like the name brings a satisfying end to the experience with a compilation of snippets from all of the songs you just heard.

All in all, the project showcases Eilish’s raw talent, chilling but hard to resist vibes, and innovating sound. Just 17 years old, the teenager has a promising future ahead of her.
