N4November’s third single is titled Mistakes and Heartbreak. The song keeps up some lovely harmonies, and the opening is accompanied by a light instrumental. His vocals were so full of emotion that the lyrics pierced deeply. N4November’s music appears to draw inspiration from the month’s melancholy.
In “Dear Friend,” N4November takes us through a chat between two people before throwing us into “Constant Reminder,” a muddled study of daily living. In the appropriately titled “Mistakes and Heartbreak,” he is now leading us into a reflection on regret and the learning that results from the mistakes we make. Through the song, he examines both the learning that comes from mistakes and the desire to have known then what he knows now in order to be a better person.
The tune adds a hint of nostalgia to an experimental rock-pop sound while being deeply rooted in a regret that we can all connect to. This song, which N4November composed his first of six years ago, still resonates today and is strengthened by the abilities he has developed since then. This song, which he holds dear to his heart, adds a touch of youth to the maturity he has attained and perfectly encapsulates the thoughts expressed in the lyrics.
The vocals that shout out like a choir at the beginning of “Mistakes and Heartbreak” have a lovely depth to them. This initial vocal line has a melancholy quality to it since it raises worries that many individuals have after a relationship ends. A single vocal line that is incredibly passionate and powerful drops into the choral depths of the vocals. You feel as though the sadness that has been weaved into the performance happened to you because it reaches into your chest and tugs at your emotions.
Before the verse shifts to a contemplation on the mistakes he made in the relationship that caused its breakup, the chorus revives the choral sense of the opening. He feels a deep want to make amends when he considers the errors, based on the knowledge you have at this time. This leads to a realisation of the growth that errors provide, but the understanding is still tempered by the melancholy of the single.
The melody gives the song a delicate edge, but the vocals are by far its driving force and most captivating feature. The track has a sensitive sensitivity added by the gentle tones that flow through the verses. The melody takes on a sweep as you approach the chorus, giving the lyrics and vocal performance more force. Under the vocals, a lush sound rises before dropping, intensifying the anguished feelings.
With the hurt, grief, and longing of “Mistakes and Heartbreak,” N4November touches on the progress that regrets can offer. The vocals, which are the single’s main attraction, are amazing in their emotive intensity because they give you the impression that you have personally felt the grief they are singing about. The melody has a light touch beneath the voices that swells into richness in the chorus.
