Remember a while ago and everyone was asking who is a bigger badass than Taylor Swift? I’d go out on a limb and say that Emily Sweeney fits the bill nicely with her latest release Fake I.D.
In my opinion, you’re never too country to be considered a Riot Grrrl and thanks to the lyrics In Fake I.D. that’s where Emily Sweeney proved she aught to be. Through her latest single, I’m going to go out on a limb and say she can speak for every woman when it comes to dealing with the front that men love to put on when they think we can be fooled by their narcissistic charm. Now THIS is the music that girls should grow up listening to. Her style may have a Country Blues vibe to it, but the Rock roots there are still palpable as polished as they became in the production. The attitude that Emily soulfully exudes in this track is beyond anything I’ve heard from a girl with a guitar in a long time. With Fake I.D. She created the perfect Pop Rock track with plenty of soaring instrumental breakdown segments to stick your teeth into.
