GRETA ISAAC HAS THE "POWER"
Ahhh so many harmonies, my favourite. We got them in the main opening vocal lead, then the background, then repeat. My ears are so satisfied. This production too is so experimental and unique, the obscure bass melodies and dreamy bells and such, it really paints a fantasy in my head.
Cramming joy, sorrow, hope and a very 21st century sense for ennui into each of her explosive pop tracks, Greta Isaac is about to embark on the release of a collection of songs written across an 18 month period of artistic and personal self-reflection. While heavyweight champions on the lyric side, Greta lifts her songs to the skies with massive hooks and virtuous instrumentals. Her first offering ‘Power’ combines a sharp message with choral arrangements and minimal background music - an almost acapella song about the effect of poisoned compliments, the sinister anger coming across in words and music.
Greta says: “This is about how I feel being looked at as a woman and how I can feel useless without the affirmation of the male gaze. Each line starts as a compliment then slowly transitions to sinister promises. The idea of being complimented about my appearance and when I haven’t accepted them, or actively challenged them, my appearance and my femininity is used as a weapon against me."
