Megan Wilder releases your new favorite sad song ‘If I Knew.” There are songs that are written well, and then there are songs that cut to the bone. Her voice not only washes over you, but seeps deep in and infects you with emotion. The pain in her voice is evident as she sings extremely relatable break-up lyrics. This is one of those songs. For Megan, this song is about rising from the ashes of a toxic relationship, but the duality of the hook line makes this relatable for just about anyone.
She sets it to simple acoustic guitar driven production, making the vocals the shining focus of the track. The entire song is underlaid with a quiet strength. Regardless of the song being one big question that lyrically is never answered, Wilder answers in a different way. A resounding “no” can be heard through her strong vocals, and the steady pulse of instruments that all grow in conviction from the first breath through the last notes. This is the perfect song for anyone who needs a little catharsis, whether that be because of a breakup, or because they’re ruminating on past mistakes, or because they just need to relate to someone, or any other emotional turmoil that just needs a companion to help get it out. “If I Knew,” promises a bright future for Megan Wilder.
