It is no secret that being in your teenagers can completely be suck, however so many artists have turned that anxiousness and fear into unimaginable artwork for the world to get pleasure from. The most recent to take action is the unimaginable Hannah Grae, who challenges the established order and stands agency in who she is on ‘Hell Is A Teenage Lady’. And sure, it’s as satisfying as that title suggests. The tune begins out fairly delicate, centered round an acoustic guitar earlier than Hannah exclaims, “you look the identical” with the next depth, and it switches to a rock tune!
I actually wished it to really feel like a journal entry to me. For the primary time, I used to be keen to essentially discover how I felt and never cowl it with deep metaphors or fancy phrases. To be trustworthy, I simply wished to complain. The entire tune is an enormous fats 3 and a half minutes of me being an unrepentant brat, and I adore it…I am listening to it now and I am happy with how trustworthy and easy I could possibly be. It actually looks like I am wanting again at an outdated journal entry, and I already really feel like I’ve grown since then.
We love how the distinction between the 2 predominant sounds of the tune displays the distinction between who we actually wish to be as youngsters and who we’re anticipated to be. “Hell Is A Teenage Lady” revolves round a scene within the toilet the place the college’s ostensible It Lady, AKA the boss who’s again at it, influences these round her and pays somewhat an excessive amount of consideration to her make-up as an alternative of how she influences her friends.
You may even argue that the It Lady is not a lady in any respect however a personification of the requirements girls are held to, particularly of their teenage years once they’re attempting to determine who they are surely. Your teenagers are a time whenever you’re juggling faculty, friendships, and determining what you need in life… however ridiculous magnificence requirements add much more stress that nobody ought to have to fret about. Teenage ladies are put by means of hell on so many ranges, however even then they’ve the hearth to battle again towards social norms and turn out to be hell in their very own method.
We may actually see Jenny Humphrey from Gossip lady cheered to this tune throughout her first 12 months at Constance Billard – come on, “promenade queen so bent on ruining everybody’s life” completely appears like one thing she would say about Blair Waldorf! And “she left the mirror after I took her place” would so match the arc the place Blair loses her Queen B standing when Jenny rises to the highest.
We want we may have had a tune like “Hell Is A Teenage Lady” to assist us really feel much less alone in our teenagers! That cliffhanger would have gotten us by means of so many arduous occasions, and we’re glad we not less than have it now to channel our internal teenage lady and battle again towards something that brings us down.
