‘Sweet 16’ belies the somber feelings of turning 16 at the start of the pandemic. Things weren’t shaping up to be as glamorous as the world had promised. What else is a teen to do? Change it up? Party? Convincing yourself is harder than it looks. With blunt lyrics and flippant humor, “Sweet 16” will have you feeling more validated than ever.

The bittersweet tune contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Furthermore, “Sweet 16” possesses moody instrumentation flavored with haunting synths and emo-pop elements. The song serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from morgen in the near future as she continues to release new music.

“It’s my 16th birthday and it really ain’t that sweet.”
