Love and heartbreak are absolutely nothing like in the movies. Love rushes into your body like a bolt of lightning, and heartbreak smashes you in two. These extremes dance between synths in Essy’s “Love Don’t Let Me Down,” a charmingly rose-tinted musing on life’s brutal ups and downs. “I still go out / Dance till the last call / Forget why I’m hurting / Giving it my all,” Essy powers up on the escapist hook. But romances on the silver screen don’t play out the same way. There’s always a love story waiting around the corner. Real life usually has other plans. For now, just dance.
