U.K. jazz guitarist and vocalist Oscar Jerome released his latest single “Do You Really” today. The artist, who released his Where Are Your Branches? EP earlier this year takes on societal norms on the new song. The lyrics call traditional masculinity into question which Jerome explains,
“This tune is about struggling with unrealistic ideals of sex, gender roles and masculinity. The difference between intellectually knowing what is right and actually changing the way you feel deep down after being brainwashed from birth.”
“Do You Really” addresses serious identity questions with a casual tone that contradicts the seriousness of the topic.
