Actually even just the music would do it because it is amazing. I've been showing her to all my friends and even the ones more into "pure pop only pls" are vibing and enjoying the whole character-storytelling. Cannot wait for the next steps.
Babygirl needs to win the BUDGET to get the music videos she wants and deserves.
The album’s a cappella and instrumental tracks are out there now. I knew all along that the instrumental work was masterclass in the art of the slow build, but the a cappella tracks emphasize how much vocal texture went into this record. Superb harmonies and nuanced layering.
Your momma calls me sometimes
To see if I’m doing well
And I lie to her
And say that I’m doing fine
When really I’d kill myself
To hold you one more time
is breathtaking levels of painful. Absolutely absurd. The first time I heard it, it was a quiet ache that made me curl up into myself. I feel like screaming it these days. The way she’s become one of my favorite songwriters ever, this early on…I’m frightened at the thought of what she’s capable of doing, moving forward. What an artist.
It’s been two months since I started listening to her music and I still go back to her every single day. It’s been forever since an act has had this effect on me (since MUNA maybe?) and it’s one of my favourite things.
I’ve been obsessed with Hard Times this week. Despite the dark subject matter I find the melody weirdly comforting, especially the outro.
It should be a separate project yes, unless something changes down the funnel! I'm not sure how much this was conjecture but I believe the side project was to appease L*ke and get out of her contract faster whereas the B sides are focused on expanding the universe of Preacher's Daughter.
