Arkansas' SingleTree presents themselves to the marketplace with a questioning over closure. "Is It Really Over Now?" reveals the pains of a not-so-mutual breakup. The lyrics of the song deepen as it plays out, with a chorus asking the questions that many lovers do, searching for closure. Presenting Jason Campbell's verses under minimal guitar add to the gravity of the song, also yielding for a meaningful chorus that brings in the rest of the bad. This is hardly happy music, but a tangible issue presented in traditional form, from a younger group on the rise, adds dimension to an always-relevant issue. Sadly, the song answers itself, but serves as a guiding light in the quest to truly let go.
