Dublin based singer Tertia challenges stereotypes in ‘Overly Emotional Women’

Words: Dylan Murphy

“I wanted to make a track which unboxes the power of the “bitches be crazy” stereotype against a calm harmonic backdrop.”

London-raised, Dublin-based singer Tertia has shared ‘Overly Emotional Women’ ahead of her forthcoming EP.

A classically trained multi-instrumentalist, Tertia simultaneously pulls influence from the likes of Grimes and Alice Phoebe Lou without compromising the charming bedroom pop aesthetic that laces her new cut.

Her distinct blend of synth-led backdrops and meditative vocals has led to her performing at the likes of Camden ASsmebly in London and more recently supported Oscar Blue in the SoundHouse.

Speaking on her latest single, Tertia said:

“Overly Emotional Women” is a satirical comment on the perception of female hysteria through the eyes of both men and women. I wanted to make a track which unboxes the power of the “bitches be crazy” stereotype against a calm harmonic backdrop. The song will be shortly followed by a music video which visually reflects those themes of silent volatility. I wrote and co-produced the song alongside Deutsch producer, Sascha Meijer.
