Debbie Neigher is releasing her sophomore album, Unravel, in November, and like her, we’re ready.
In “I Am Ready,” a space-y synth intro leads to an electro-pop chorus, backed by even more synth and foot-tapping drum beats that make you want to get up and dance.
Unravel was produced by John Vanderslice (Spoon, The Mountain Goats), at his Tiny Telephone Studio in San Francisco. Together, Neigher and Vanderslice created what they call the “Dream Team” – a collaboration of San Francisco talent to help put together the arrangements.
“This song is all about facing one’s vulnerability; embracing it, owning it, and having it lead to power,” says Neigher. “It’s important to me that this is specifically about a woman loving herself and being tired of the fear that comes with accepting love, making mistakes, self-doubt, and self-image. It’s also just about being grateful for life itself and not wanting to waste any more time being afraid to live it fully and honestly.”
