Pearl Connects With Desire On ‘Body Parts’

She's embracing the carnal...

Pearl has shared her enticing new single ‘Body Parts’.

The songwriter is forever true to herself, as evidenced by her debut EP ‘Where I Go’. Shared in full last summer, the release spotlighted a talent who was unafraid to break boundaries, while doing so in a way that was refreshing and open.

Continuing surging into new spaces, her latest single finds Pearl raising the bar once more. Out now, ‘Body Parts’ offers pop at its most lustful, reminiscent of Maggie Rogers’ last album, or even Sigrid.

Lyrically, she deals with the carnal, while the terrific arrangement – recorded and co-produced at Strongroom Studios with Josh Oliver – surges to a climactic finale.

Pearl says of the single…

To be honest… I was thinking about one-night stands… the good ones, the intoxicating moments of disconnected intimacy, where physical desire eclipses rationale.

This opened up a bigger conversation around sexual objectification. I realised the importance of distinguishing between wanting to objectify oneself, driven by mutual pleasure and consent, versus conforming to societal expectations. If both parties are willingly engaged, motivated by pleasure, I see no issue in embracing such desires.

Tune in now.
