Cosima- “Girls Who Get Ready”


Cosima’s “Girls Who Get Ready” has goose down pillow-soft production, but the electro R&B/synthpop singer isn’t so fleecy and demurring. Over those faint synths and barely there bass rumbles, Cosima projects “I don’t want to be your faceless lover, I don’t want to be the freak you fuck with.” That line, along with much of the song, isn’t the artist simply chafing against objectification, it’s her demanding to be appreciated and respected on her specific terms. She’ll participate in “No Make-Up Monday” if she wants. Chowing down on mountainous cake (as seen in the hazy video) before going out is her prerogative. Sans overly demanding relationship, she’s free and ready to fly.
