I don't like to rate singles on this site, but this song is easily the best she released since her 2017 EP. This overall rating is a shame honestly.
Her best song easily, love the dark, psychedelic vibe going throughout the song, all the individual parts come together really well, if only it had something more maybe at the end or maybe a slightly faster pace in some parts it could've been a 10, regardless, it's a great song!
Although this song has fuck-all to do with one of the best films of the year, it is a very eerie tune that provides an interesting and surreal environment, which is complimented by the use of auto tune by Billie.

The lyrics to the chorus are absolutely gorgeous, but the verses are kind of uninspired. When the drums kick in, I was taken out of the atmosphere a bit, and I feel like they were not that necessary for the minimalistic tone she seems to be taking with this piece.

this song was lowkey so boring, i could barely hear her. i know shes done this style of very quiet beginnings with 'when the partys over' but the autotune thing kinda killed it. i suppose this shows her vocal range (in which shes going deep at the start) but thats it. instrumentals were not amazing. but hey i'll give her points for a catchy chorus. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
it was just a bit of a weird song
