Wallis Bird Releases New Song BRUTAL HONESTY

Today, Wallis Bird released "Brutal Honesty," a new song from her forthcoming record Woman (AntiFragile).

"'Brutal Honesty' is a song about the urge to put one's emotional house in order, comparing loves through my life and critiquing myself from their perspective," Wallis says. The track premiered exclusively via East of 8th earlier this week.

Wallis is not one to shy away from expressing her feelings, and she believes that actions speak louder than words. A lot has inspired her since her last album; "The world has changed a lot, and I've changed with it. The #MeToo movement, Repeal the 8th, marriage equality in Australia, Black Lives Matter, Trump, Brexit, the rise of racism, the death of countless musical icons, the environmental crisis."

Woman - written and almost exclusively performed by Bird, with regular associate Marcus Wüst as co-producer - represents Bird's transparent attempt to speak out against injustice and counteract apathy through bold, blunt confessionals. "Like most artists, I've probably shirked my responsibilities at times so as not to rock any boats," she reveals. "But I decided it was time to change that." Her goal now is to animate and agitate, and Woman - eleven songs long but 37 minutes short, pointed, powerful, and packed with truths and levity - does just that. More significantly, it insists our lives are intertwined with inescapable consequences.
