Clearly, Ishan is not bothered to conceal his proclivity towards “the feels”. Unlike most people, he dares to make peace with the possibility of being the source of toxicity in the relationship, as he gently coaxes his ever so sweet falsetto to acknowledge an ex’s post-breakup thriving.
Emotion is one aspect he chose not to be conservative within this song, and that’s reason number one to vibe to it. “Better Off Without Me” is as soulful as it gets, although it leaves behind an after-taste that makes one wonder if “soulful” is a condiment Ishan should use so often.
Apart from the challenge of having to hear the words “better off without me” seven times in the first minute, a feature that makes it lean towards monotony, the song is fairly congenial to us emotional beings. It is a calm and easy-on-the-ear joint, and we’re all for the expansion of audiences and the devastation of genre boundaries.
