Gertie’s debut single, Body, is a powerful and moving exploration of a complex topic. The song is about body dysphoria, a condition that often affects young queer individuals.
If you’re not familiar with the term, body dysphoria can be described as a feeling of profound discomfort or distress with one’s own physical body. It causes a lot of emotional pain and isn’t easy to overcome.
The lyrics of Body serve as a reminder that we need to do better in understanding and supporting those who are struggling. Gertie’s song is an important step in bringing awareness to this issue, and we hope that it will help to make a difference in the lives of many people.
Body has an amazing arrangement. It begins slowly with sparse instrumentation, before the drums kick in and push the sound to groundbreaking levels. Gertie’s vocals are absolutely compelling, making you want to keep listening.
