Are you Ready?
A funky piano riff opens the penultimate single, Ready, from the singer-songwriter Phoebe Coco’s forthcoming debut album, My White Horse & I. The musings of a strong individual stating that “I wouldn’t mess with me”, it is sung in a confident, powerful but melodic tone. There is real attitude here with a vibe of positivity. Phoebe sings “there’s a force inside of me” over a bass and drum which confirms this sense of empowerment from within. I just loved the repetition of this line, almost a positive affirmation contributing to a belief in oneself. There is a real feeling here of being able to move forward in life. Twin sisters Grace and Dorothy are also on this track with a beautiful background harmony. Atmospheric and growing in strength and power as the song progresses, by the end, you genuinely believe that “I’m as ready as I’ll ever be, from the sun right down to the sea”.
By the way, the video for Ready is just fabulous. I mean, it is not often you see someone swimming in a red catsuit while still looking glamorous!
