Coffee is a stimulator that awakens us and often serve as signs of adulthood. Resurrection Fern toys with such connotations in her latest single “Coffee” where she takes us into a coming-of-age odyssey that documents her growth as an artist. “Coffee rings on the shelf / Writing messages to myself / About who I’m supposed to be” are the opening lines of the song, where Resurrection invites us into her intimate headspace. It’s an endearing self-ode that is ambitious and curious where Resurrection sweeps over the pressures of being a non-mainstream musician in an era of self-sellout. With a featherlike melodic density, Resurrection lets a few chords and her voice take the centerstage of “Coffee” where she delineates her own love/hate relationship with music:
“The fight against probability / I try to be me / What I think I need / Escape the machine” she chants. In this context, ‘machine’ represents the algorithm-fed mainstream music that permeate the charts and often tempt artists to abandon their own individual craft. “Coffee” often symbolizes beginnings, a small break before we head into our daily grind/hustle. For Resurrection, “Coffee” serves as another beginning and journey of her artistry where she feels fully awake of who she wants and thrives to be.
“Coffee” is from Resurrection’s upcoming full-length album and the follow up of her latest record Savanna.
