There’s a lot of pressure to be perfect, and it seems like it’s only getting worse. With social media, we’re constantly comparing ourselves to others and seeing “perfect” lives that are only a highlight reel. It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we need to look a certain way or act a certain way to be happy.
But what is perfect? Who gets to decide? And why does it matter so much?
Fiona-Lee’s new live single, Awry, shows us that it’s OK to be imperfect. In fact, it’s more than OK—it’s human. The lyrics are about self-awareness, coming to terms with insecurities, and the impact someone else can have on your opinion of yourself. Fiona-Lee wrote this song through a stream of consciousness, and looking back, she thinks she was aware of what she was writing about at the time.
The artist’s vocals are amazing on Awry. She’s able to carry a note without sounding screechy or like she’s forcing it, and I think that has a lot to do with her timbre. It’s just really enjoyable to listen to, even when she’s singing at high volume.
