Emerging West Sydney artist Chirine kicks off 2022 with ‘Too Much’



Western Sydney artist Chirine has dropped her first single of 2022 entitled ‘Too Much’, a track which showcases her expert grasp of signature R&B elements conveyed in a love-worn fashion. Chirine explores the cyclical nature of a toxic relationship and the repercussions of being involved in it.


The reverberating harp and chimes instantly establish the sensual and emotional mood to the whole track with scalic and arpeggiated movement. “All I want to hear is baby I heard you, all I seem to get is who fucking hurt you”, Chirine sings, conveying the overwhelming struggle between two people that can be exacerbated through the suppression of communication and retrospective pain from other relationships. The overarching implication is that all an individual wants is genuine love from their significant other and if that is too much to ask, there is no logic in continuing the pain of each other's company. Chirine artistically conveys this theme through musicological and lyrical elements that synergistically contribute to a complete track.

The last chorus is the apex of the track with Chirine’s strong harmonies and eloquent runs coming to the fore. Her tone is sensual and almost suppressed, which creates the feeling of being on the precipice of escaping from troubling times. The track ends with the harp and chimes calling back again to the intro of the song and reinforcing the never-ending state of a toxic relationship. The listener is left with intrapersonal reflective contingencies knowing at what point is asking too much of another person and whether they still benefit from the different aspects pertaining to a relationship. The lyrics: “All I really want is someone to love”, places it into the perspective that love should be the bare minimum between two committed individuals. Undoubtedly, we are more than excited to see what Chirine brings to the Australian music scene as we anticipate future releases.
