Clocking in at just shy of 3 and a half minutes, 1954 manages to pack in a brief humming intro, cracking verses to match its insanely catchy chorus and even a “dum-diddy-dum, du-dum-dum-dum” or two.
Michaela’s official stance on her single, as taken from a press release is as follows:
“1954 is a song that represents empowerment and strength in a world where people can and will criticize your every move. I wrote the song out of frustration with old school societal norms that have no place in today’s culture. I wanted to write something that empowers people to live their life the way they choose. No matter what judgement or negativity someone faces, it’s possible to rise above it and (as cheesy as this may sound) just be who you are. I wrote the song in just a few hours and recorded the song the next day. It’s a defiant, sassy song and it embodies everything I have wanted to say for a long time!”
So that’s that.
Oh, and this is the first single from a debut EP that’s coming in March.
