2x Grammy-nominated artist, Demi Lovato, is back in the music spotlight this week as they ushered in this new rock/punk-rock era! See below for my first reactions to their first single, “Skin Of My Teeth.” It’s the pick of the week for Friday, June 10, 2022!
“Skin Of My Teeth” by Demi Lovato
0:08 😮- “Demi leaves rehab again.” Right off the bat, they’re describing their personal life (past addiction struggles) in a powerful song. I appreciate Demi’s pivot back to rocker vibes!
0:27 🙏🏽 😣- While thankful they’re alive, life isn’t easy despite multiple trips to rehab. Their mannerisms in the tub and toward the camera show the emotional/mental tug of war that goes on day to day.
0:44 🩸- Oh my! Blood in the tub for a split second.
0:56 👀 – Again, but with scattered teeth in the sink. If you’re squeamish about these images, feel free to jump ahead a bit.
1:15 😎- I dig the darker wardrobe choices. Matches that guitar well!
1:50 🤘🤘- Cathartic bridge moment!
2:04 😈 Epic takeback of control of one’s life right there! Perfect analogy!
Once again, the vocals are superb! The vulnerability was very palpable all throughout the song/music video!! 👏🏽👏🏽
This song will speak volumes to those experiencing the ups and downs of addiction or any other form of mental health maladies.
I’m stoked to hear more from Demi as we get closer to the release of their eighth studio album, Holy Fvck out on August 19th in stores and on your favorite digital platforms! Pre-order and pre-save today! Are you excited Lovatics?!
