A nice calmness starts the song with a pulsating bass accompanied by synth chords. The progression builds patiently allowing space for Sapphire’s voice to take center stage and just as the bass EQ’s as a build for its high frequencies, a killer hook drops that is catchy and beautiful.

The vocoder effect with fantastically written melody comes off clean and catchy as a ticking clock fittingly runs in the background. Pitch shifted adlibs alongside a mellifluous falsetta sit gorgeously over a deep bass making it really hard to not fall in love with this hook.

The song’s groove really picks up in the second verse, revealing Sapphire’s vulnerable confession that she continues to naively believe in the lies that are presented in complex relationships. “I’m so damn good at believing that lie,” is very relatable and just as the song could not get any prettier, it closes with an emotive outro of electronic effects on the vocals, instruments, and drum programming. 

Sapphire says she likes to turn her overthinking into songs. Her artistic expression on “Repeat” adds a fresh and original take on a style of song we’ve heard many times before. This song is awesome and will certainly be played on repeat.
