smudgeout is back with another song titled “cheap jewelry”. The 3-minute track talks about the fashion industry’s tight grip on American consumers. She uses the track to express her disappointment and dissatisfaction with the fashion industry while also advocating for ethical consumption. She expresses all this with amazing vocals, hard-hitting guitar riffs, and drums. She paints a vivid picture with “cheap jewelry” which helps listeners understand the song, as well as her grievances from her perspective. “cheap jewelry” also marks her second release of 2021, with “Queen of Hearts” as the first. With both tracks being amazing, as well as her 2020 album, we are really looking forward to what the 19 year-old artist has in store for the future.
