Tommy Genesis has announced a follow-up to her 2018 self-titled album: it’s called goldilocks x and comes out on September 10 via Downtown. Speaking on the themes of the record, she says:
“Goldilocks is that feeling when things feel “just right”. Like you’re entering a space that makes sense, you just can’t put your finger on why but it just does. You don’t know why you like it but you do. The X is the unknown factor, the experimental element, the punk.”
Our first taste of the record is “a woman is a god”, a slinky, house track produced by The Martinez Brothers. Over a high-speed beat and tasteful midnight synths, Genesis does her thing, sliding around the beat like she owns the place, her flow cutting and gliding with confidence. The first verse has her swirling her way through bodies, while the second describes a whole club night for a mortal; from the queue, to the dancefloor, to the inevitable infatuation with all the writhing female bodies around. “If a man is a man / then a woman is a god,” she asserts in the chorus. As if that wasn’t confident enough, she finishes off the song by rapping about how “this song is a smash” and she’s “taking off my skin.” Beguiling and bumping as ever.
