While presenting yourself as someone who has everything under control can sometimes be seen as a sign of confidence, it can also be a sign of insecurity and a lack of self-esteem. For some men, talking to women and making themselves look perfect is a way to mask their doubts. They may be afraid of being rejected or being seen as vulnerable.
evil, the new single by Keri Sreb, tackles the problem of men having pride issues. Know someone like that? If that’s the case, this song will remind you of him. The sassy lyrics are addressed to those men who believe they are actors. They really behave as if they are a different person, which is quite amusing. Keri responds to that in a lighthearted, but also direct manner. Basically, she paints the picture of a fragile ego that’s easily damaged.
The verses are not hard to follow, and the song is a fantastic illustration of how a simple melody can be extremely powerful. The bass line also contributes to the overall artistic appeal. It’s subtle, but it’s there, and it provides a fitting frame for Sreb’s soaring voice.
