There is something refreshing about a song that takes on the uncomfortable feeling of realizing you’re revealing your whole self. BREE, however, flaunts it with an energy that is anthemic and — once the nettled lyrics pass by — proud. We can only ever be ourselves. BREE wants you to know this as she does.
“Damn I’m Being Me Again” is all rock and roll vocals with pop hooks and rhythmic guitar. The track comes off BREE’s second record, New Skin, which follows 2013’s passionate All American Girl. As the title might suggest, the songstress brings her all to the video, which is simple in concept but all the more powerful for it. Clad in black and performing in front of a white backdrop, BREE takes centre with her band behind her. There’s even a stand up bass, adding rhythm and aesthetic at once.
Having grown up in a religious cult lead by her father, and then losing her mother, BREE knows about pulling herself out of her past and into her present self. Perhaps she feels frustration at letting her true self shine through in full-force, but without this strength of honesty, her music wouldn’t have the mesmeric shine it does now.
We, for one, are happy that BREE is being BREE again.
