Mariette may have been a witch of the darkest night at Melodifestivalen but judging by “My Revolution” she has seen the light.
The song is trailing her EP, out on June 17, and serves as the anthem for Stockholm Pride 2015.
Gothic chimes of doom, Dementor backing singers and bewitching light shows are out. Instead the track comes across as Glinda the Good, spreading hope and cheer in a glittering display that probably stops just short of bubblegum territory.
Mariette rests it back with her trademark ethereal voice, emotional vocal appeals and a message of tolerance and acceptance uncommon in today’s charts.
Mariette’s battle cry easily wins you round to her revolution, equal parts sugary pop and rallying anthem.
She told Sveriges Radio that the song is about “trusting your gut feeling.” “People should dare to make their own revolution,” she suggested to the radio station. Asked about her own personal revolution, she said it remains her experience of coming out: “even though I was so very worried about what people would think, I still found a pride there.”
We salute the inspirational message and the catchy song Mariette has chosen to show case the message in. We are all revolutionaries y’all and this song is a battlecry for us!
Bring on the EP.
