"Goodbye to Heartache" is the most recent release by Los Angeles-born artist, Janelane. Front-woman Sophie Negrini's tender vocals lay gently on top of harmony-stacked instrumentals. The song takes you into a wonderful nostalgia of a warm summer spent with your friends. With the help of a Rhodes, Negrini tells the familiar story of trying to be strong despite getting her heart broken, singing with relatable uncertainty that she is "okay with dancing alone". While "Goodbye" is a musical departure from the proudly Pop-Punk "Celebrity Crush" (released March 2021 via Kingfisher Bluez), it reaffirms LA Weekly 's description of Negrini as a "witty songwriter with a gift for earworm melodies" and further elicits Negrini's range as an artist, hinting at what has yet to come.
