What’s this? New music from Sweden’s Peg Parnevik, the music video for which she released this weekend – her latest single ‘My Name’.
What’s it like? A sass-laden, down-beat pop tune with a purposely distorted production which only serves to put more focus on the lyrics. Lyrics which you can totally tell she means every word of when she’s performing them.
What does Peg say? “I have realised over the past year that only a handful of people really know me. But people want to take really big swings, like they’ve known me my whole life. Being a woman often means being too much – too crazy, too sensitive, too quiet, too angry. It is a persona painted by the viewer. Everyone talks so much but you do not know me – so let me have my say. Then you can say and think what you want. It feels important as an artist, as myself and as a woman to stand up for myself now.”
Written by? Peg herself, along with Filip Groundstroem and Isa Tengblad. Isa also produced it, along with Gustav Landell.
More from Peg? Last month she released the break-up ballad ‘Somewhere Without Me‘. Later this month she’ll release her brand-new EP.
