Describing her sound as ‘electro-organic dream pop,’ For Esmé defies the archaic gender norms that still permeate in our society with her new single “Doubtmouth.” The track has a strange, arrhythmic arrangement to it that yields an unconventional pop hook where For Esmé’s velvety vocals deliver a boiling feistiness. More than anger, it is an upbeat call for women to break silence and never doubt their voices. Listen below:
“‘Doubtmouth’ moves through the doubt that chokes us, and the labels that shrink us, to find a voice and body that refuses to be quieted.” shared For Esmé.
Hailing from Toronto, For Esmé has always been interested in human pscye since majoring in psychology at Queen’s University. Coming from a diverse work experience backgrounds, For Esmé has worked with four different all-male teams where she had to repeatedly tiptoe around her words to meet the gender norms (*barf). “Doubtmouth” is from her upcoming LP Righteous Woman, which she describes it as a “feminist awakening” and will be out on May 25th.
