‘You Forever’ is another standout track from Self Esteem – AKA Rebecca Taylor – which “toys with ‘80s slap-bass but shies away from full-blown saturated excess,” as noted by El Hunt in her NME review of ‘Prioritise Pleasure’.
“This song is about the bravery of being alone vs the bravery of taking a chance,” Taylor said of the single. “Both very valid. I’m also just talking about me, my band, the people I found since going solo, how we’ve made this difference. I’ve done it all without a traditional ‘support network’ and found my own. I think that’s a life hack.”
‘Prioritise Pleasure’ is due for release on October 22, featuring the already released singles ‘Moody’, ‘Prioritise Pleasure’, ‘How Can I Help You’ and ‘I Do This All The Time’.
Self Esteem recently shared the video for ‘Moody’ featuring Alistair Green and is headed out on a 19 date headline tour this November.
