LA based pop/soul singer songwriter Madi Rindge deals with a past abusive relationship in her single “Perfect”.
Taken from her upcoming EP set to be released on April of 2018, her single serves a way to set her free. In the track, she writes about the unachievable high expectations the society has of women: being pretty, being thin, being polite, etc. She decided to take another direction: to accept and love herself. With her own words, Madi Rindge explains the meaning behind her new track.
About a year ago, I left an emotionally and verbally abusive relationship. I stayed quiet for too long. When I freed myself from that relationship, I had a lot of time to think about what was making me unhappy and why. And I realized I have spent most of my life in a world where women have to meet unrealistic expectations in order to be accepted and “respected.” I was fed up with having to constantly conform to a culture that made me feel like I was never enough. I was so fired up one day this past May, that I sat down and wrote “Perfect”.
“It’s my way of influencing people to think about themselves in a way society doesn’t teach us to.” – Madi Rindge
We are taught at a very young age the idea that women have to be ‘perfect’. I read a quote recently that I feel really captured the message of this song. “In a society that profits from your self doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act”. And “Perfect” is my way of rebelling. It’s my way of influencing people to think about themselves in a way society doesn’t teach us to.
As the second song of 5 from my upcoming debut EP Just One that I’ll be releasing April 1st 2018, “Perfect” is my girl-powered anthem. I’m releasing a new single on the first of each month, which I started doing in November, with “Somethin’ On Ya” up next January 1st, 2018!
