Keep up with Robin's journey here:
Are you "The Trusting Kind"?
Robin April gets painfully deep in her new single "The Trusting Kind" about heartbreak and recovery. It's a country sound with a slight hint of pop that results in a genuine sound with honest lyrics. She starts off her new single in the most relatable way possible, " I knew a boy who told me all the right things". It's a song that girls who have experienced a similar kind of pain can relate to. This song is different than most heartbreak songs because it approaches it from a different angle. "The Trusting Kind" is about what happens after the heartbreak. It's about the healing process and the difficulty that comes with trying to trust and love again. You can use tape and glue to patch up a broken heart, but sometimes the scars won't fully heal. I think I speak for most females out there when I say, we need more songs like this that expose the real truths of heartbreak from a different perspective. Instead of trying to glamorize heartbreak, it shines the light on the ugly truth.
Keep on keepin' on Robin April!
