Nadine de Macedo - Princess
Music,  Release

This Princess ain’t somebody to mess with!

Happy women’s day! I usually don’t write political songs, but after the lyrics of “Princess” it’s been crystal clear that there’s no better release day than March 8.

The lyrics are written from the view of a princess who suffers under role conflicts. Born in a respectable and wealthy family she is forced to live the life of a princess: behave well, dress well, find a partner, be a representative, fit into a hierarchy etc. which is possibly not the way she want to live. You can easily transfer this historical picture into today’s society, where women are still expected to dress, behave and act in a certain way.

Musically, I have never been so clear about the choices of instruments and genre. The haunting harpsichord represents the baroque upper class society, where it’s been one of the less instruments that were allowed to play by women. Contrasting this with heavy guitars brings it to modern age and highlights the idea of a neoclassical metal ragequit.
