“Defiant” is a hard-hitting and insightful record from Seeeyegee, Shayla Hamady and Alyssa Jane who share their thoughts on real-time issues affecting them. The politicly charged tune is cinematic and brooding and sees the artists pouring their frustrations candidly with intense lyrics tied by a gripping melodic chorus. The ladies sure hold nothing back and send stray shots at the people in government who recently overturned Roe v. Wade with lines like “You can’t breathe under a temporary problem/now I’m yelling out I can’t breathe. They got my body under holy water” and ” F you and your Toupee, he ain’t your POTUS baby/ I know you love to worship republicans talking crazy“.
Just as the tile suggests, it’s pure defiance from this all-female collaboration who takes charge of what is theirs.
