Holliss is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released a lovely debut single, entitled, “Mental Pictures.”
Holliss – “Mental Pictures” single
“‘Mental Pictures’ is all about living in the moment. So many people are living life through their phones. They’re obsessed with capturing the best picture, with the best angle, in the best lighting – and not realizing that what they’re actually doing is missing the moment. There is something about just looking up from our phones, putting away the devices, and seeing/experiencing what’s really in front of us.” – Holliss explained
‘Mental Pictures’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who desires to possess a sentimental mixture of feelings that she will never forget. Apparently, she desires to live in the moment because she wants to appreciate what’s happening in front of her. Later, she admits, “I keep reliving the moments everywhere that I go, that’s why I’ve been taking mental pictures.”
“Every time I close my eyes and I’ve still got you in my frame of view. The snapshots of our lives – that I don’t ever wanna lose.”
“I got the inspiration for this song on a very ordinary day. I was simply driving through my neighborhood with my boyfriend (now husband) and I looked over at him while we were at a stoplight. And something about the way he looked in the moonlight just captivated me. I knew that I wanted to remember it forever. But instead of pulling out my phone to take a picture like I would normally do, I put my hands up to my face and took a ‘mental picture’ instead. We don’t give our minds enough credit. We’ve bought into the lie that a physical picture is the only way to truly capture a moment. But then I think about how vividly I remember my childhood before I ever had a phone. I remember it because I really lived it.” – Holliss explained
‘Mental Pictures’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Shawn Mendes, Dua Lipa, and Josie Dunne. The likable tune possesses lush instrumentation flavored with commercial and contemporary pop elements. Furthermore, “Mental Pictures” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Holliss in the near future as she continues to release new music.
“Got a sentimental mixture of feelings I don’t wanna forget.”
“Looked up from my phone, three miles from home. It’s a scene I’ve seen a million times before. There’s something different about the way the light hits your eyes is just right. Flashbulbs bursting color in my mind. These all might just seem like ordinary days but I don’t wanna forget this.” – lyrics
