THIS JUST IN: “Dirty pop” has officially resurfaced since its indigenous form circa 2001′s NSYNC prime–this time around, it comes to us in the form of Fiona Grey. If you find yourself drawn to the sounds of Charli XCX, Marina & The Diamonds, and Sky Ferreira, then Fiona Grey might just become your latest obsession.
Grey’s latest is aptly titled “Money,” a raw and open warning of the downfalls associated with current media and pop culture. She asks the timeless questions, “Can [money] make me happy?” and “Is this the real me?” as she examines society’s social media-propelled infatuation with the Kardashian-esque lifestyle. Produced and mixed by Mike Schuppan (M83, Paramore, Jimmy Eat World) and endorsed by Neon Gold Records, “Money” ultimately sends a positive message to young ladies searching for a higher truth and purpose in today’s Instagram era. Grey expanded,
“I wrote ‘Money’ about our culture’s widespread infatuation with pop culture and the ways our obsession with the media destroys and fulfills us. It’s about that feeling when you want to drown your sorrows in the most superficial things.”
“Money” will be featured on Fiona Grey’s forthcoming EP due later this year, and your exclusive first listen in below.
