Dark Light

We came across Coco O‘s solo material back in 2019 amidst a low in our social happiness and now that I think about it, her tracks made me feel much, much better. Indeed, you will have heard of Coco O. before. She’s one half of Quadron, a danish duo that released a few albums and rose to fame by appearing on the Great Gatsby movie Original Soundtrack alongside Jay-Z. Another noteworthy collaboration for Coco O. is the featuring on Tyler, The Creator’s track “TreeHome95” from his album ‘Wolf’…

Listen to “Soldier” by Coco O.


Cecilie Maja Hastrup Karshø is from Copenhagen in Denmark and distills the kind of soothing music you never thought you wanted to hear. Last Friday, and quite fittingly a few days after International Women’s Day, Coco O. dropped the first single “Soldier” from her forthcoming album due out later this year. An ode to women fighting masculinity still lying out there. Denouncing it full-frontal, Coco O. doesn’t spare any pithy words and delivers each with absolute vocal prowess and powerful beauty. Check out the full lyrics below and play the track above or through your favorite platform further down.

Lyrics (to be edited)

SO was solitary soldier
Beware of all the lies they told ya
Fighting for your right to say what you want, oh
Plain oppression days are over

It must be something
To be a guy
That kind of ignorance
Maybe it's time to be alike

You can call me by (You can call me by)
Any name you like (Any name you like)
I'm not a secondary being (I'm not a secondary woman)
All this masculine (All this masculine)
Overconfidence
How can I rise within your system? (How can I rise?)

I said woman
Woman
Woman
Something

Your industrialisation
Won't give me my liberation
Big bucks will make you king of make-believes
So you want to act up and get thin
Make sure my body is fitting in
To all your inner gists of feminine

It must be something
To be a guy
That kind of ignorance
Maybe it's time to be alike

You can call me by (You can call me by)
Any name you like (Any name you like)
I'm not your secondary being (No, I'm not your secondary woman)
All this masculine (All this masculine)
Overconfidence (Overconfidence)
How can I rise within your system? (How can I rise?)

I said woman (Give me something, babe)
Woman
Woman
Something

You can call me by (You can call me by)
Any name you like (Any name you like)
'Cause I'm not your, I'm not your secondary being (Woman)
All this masculine (All this masculine)
Overconfidence (Overconfidence)
How can I rise within your system? (And we're gonna need some changes)

Your words (Your words)
Your shame (Shame)
I spin the sons of so much pain (Everything you drape)
Your words (Your world is over)
Your shame (Your world is over)
I spin the sons of so much pain (Over, over, over, baby)
Your words (Don't you know it's not over?)
Your shame (Your time has been running out)
I spin the sons of so much pain (Don't you know it's over with you, babe?)
Your words (Your words)
Your shame (Shame)
I spin the sons of so much pain (Everything you drape)
