Beauty is subjective; don’t let anyone lead you to believe otherwise. Gen Z creative Nao Mali nails that mantra on their latest “Pretty / Ugly.”
This first preview of upcoming project SCANDAL is a dark-electro deflation of society’s standards of physical attraction…and one heck of a groove. Enigmatic bass work permeates the airy production, setting the stage for an instantly engaging vocal effort to round out the track’s mysterious charm. Talking message, the soloist shares:
The song is about embracing the “flaws” and feeling pretty, even though beauty norms are telling us otherwise…What is pretty? And what is ugly? Who gets to be the judge of that? Yeah you!”
Well I’m sold.
