On Cupid, Juliana Hale is able to build upon the strong singer-songwriter style of Pink and Lady Gaga. For much of this single, a piano represents the sole force establishing the instrumental side of things. Hale’s inclusion of strings at opportune points puts a highlight on the track, especially when her vocals go silent. Each part of Cupid is able to contribute mightily to a cohesive sound. Fans of early Tori Amos or Bjork will be able to dig what Hale is laying down here, but she is able to bring in just enough of a nod to current pop music to make Cupid something special.
