Today, seventeen-year-old Sydney-born singer/songwriter Evie Irie releases the official music video for new single“Worst Enemy” This pop banger is produced by GRAMMY® Award winning producer Greg Kurstin [Adele, Sia], and sets the stage for Evie Irie’s forthcoming new EP, set to arrive Fall 2020.
Billboard exclusively premiered the video yesterday describing;
“The visual presents Irie’s dynamic personality with impeccable authenticity in each of the drastically different settings that she finds herself in” and adding, “there’s no glamorizing the struggle of confronting the nastier bits of her inner psyche.”
This youngin’ already has a grasp on the industry with her undeniable vocal tone and standout songwriting that the A&R’s from Republic were the first to notice. I like how the piano segment and her vocal harmony layers are reminiscent of Queen and Elton John in a way, then boldly contrasted with modern trappy drums for a unique sonic blend.
Get caught in the video’s whirlwind below.
