I got this track in my inbox about an hour ago and I’ve been playing it over and over for the last 30 minutes. I kid you not. Jessie Munro has hooked me with her track ‘Under Fire’. It’s a modern-electro R&B pop tune that focuses on the pressures of social expectations and constantly feeling scrutinized by others.
Munro reflects on how she felt she was “under fire” from everyone in her life and the song is the realization that other peoples opinions aren’t always definitive. Inspired by Lianne La Havas and her technique of fusing lyrics with melody, Munro explains “the intent of the lyric is brought to life with a melody that evokes that same emotion”.
Now that you’ve read all that, I think you’re ready to be blown away, so here you go
