Start streaming “Criminal” right here:
Gabrielle Vaughn’s new pop-rock single “Criminal” is a song you’ll definitely want to add to your playlist. The track starts off with a strong beat that, alongside Gabrielle’s strong vocals, immerses you into the overall darker vibe of the track.
Of course, we can’t forget to acknowledge the insane electric guitar solo that is towards the end of the song. This solo adds uniqueness and an extra element to the song, making it much more fun to listen to.
Additionally, what also really stands out about this track is its lyrics. Chorus lyrics “We kill the damn radio/Another victim I know” are a clever play on words to represent the overall criminal feel of the song, by painting the radio as another victim on Vaughn and her lover’s hit list. If anyone knows how to deliver these lyrics with a perfect punch, it’s Vaughn.
