“The Optimist” music video
“Where all the dark clouds go? Silver linings of you go. Overnight this angel found her halo. I don’t really feel bad news anymore. Walking through walls like an open door. I’m shutting down the negativity, I’ll find the optimist in me. And it’s all good and it’s all bad. I’m giving in to love, I’m sick of being sad. I could be happy, I could be happy all the time.” — lyrics
‘The Optimist’ tells a heartfelt tale of an unhappy young woman who wakes up wearing (in her opinion) a “disgusting smile”.
The moody tune contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses lush instrumentation scented with an emo-pop aroma.
Evie Irie is a name you should remember and an exciting new artist to watch. The bubbly newcomer creates songs rooted in the experiences of her sisters and their friends.
‘The Optimist’ is featured on her debut EP, entitled, “5 Weeks in LA”.
As the title reflects, she wrote and recorded the project over a 5 week trip to Los Angeles that also landed her a record deal with Republic Records.

“I’m singing to myself, because in the song I’m the reason why I’m being bitter, because I’m judging myself and I’m thinking everyone is judging me—when really I’m my own enemy. The song is me escaping that mindset.” – Evie Irie in regards to the first single, “Bitter”
