It’s been a good while since we’ve heard anything from Bridget Kelly, but we are glad the classy vocalist is back with a new record, ‘In the Grey’. It’s about avoiding the middle. Kicking off the visual with a scene of the couple at a table, interrogation style, Kelly asks hard questions.
Her lover doesn’t want to commit to her. Like most people, she wants clarity. We don’t always get it, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Although, she says that she is not ‘pressed for a title’, she is pressed to know where they stand. Without digging in deep to wording and ideologies, the singer is—in theory—still asking for a title or a category of their relationship. Why? She wants to know what to tell people when they ask. Listen, the term ‘situationship’ is a real thing. I am unsure if it is a lifestyle exclusive to millennials these days, but we are a group of people who are public about our love affairs—unconventional and monogamous.
I think the songwriting for the track is well-done. I cannot locate full details on the album yet through Wikipedia, but I admire the TLC references.
Bridget Kelly’s full-length debut album—Reality Bites—features collaborations with Chaz French, James Bratton and Ro James. You can stream the independent thirteen-track release through the following link.
