Robyn body talk

At the beginning of the year reemerging pop-star, Robyn, announced that she would release three short records. Through out the past year Robyn has slowly crept into the psyche of pop-electro enthusiasts, with Body Talk Part 1 and 2 being released earlier this year and a tour with pop-R&B sure helped. Body Talk is the third and final promise and it’s not just B-sides or scrapped tracks left over from Parts 1+2.

It opens with a song Robyn fans are familiar with, “Indestructible“; an acoustic version appeared on a previous record this year -almost completely unrecognizable except for the lyrics. This is a prime example of why Robyn has been gaining so much attention this year; the lyrics speak of a woman who’s been hurt by previous relationships but willing to try someone new without all the baggage getting in the way. The new version turns into a celebratory anthem for the youth struggling with being single. It’s a four to the floor dance hit with sincere lyrics.

Robyn’s lyrics always have that personal touch that has been able to connect to a lot of people, whether she’s talking about new relationships, ‘going to love you like I’ve never been hurt before’ or something slightly more poetic, like the end of a relationship, “it’s all over like steps on the first snow” (if you’ve never experience snowy winters that analogy might lose you). In “Get Myself Together” she sings about the complete loss of self after a particularly painful break up. It’s a fit of depression that she’s completely aware of, that her family is aware of-she cites various members of her family assuring her those things will be better- but the track isn’t about the mellow-drama. Like all great dance tracks it’s another uplifting anthem about getting yourself out of whatever personal rut you find yourself in, the chorus chants, “I’ve got to get my head back on, get myself together” it’s about moving on and finding that peace once again.

After three short albums, all within 10 months, Robyn has not creatively exhausted herself. Body Talk contains the sweetest and most honest tracks of the three without sacrificing the fun club beats. If you’re a fan of the first two parts you’ll definitely enjoy this last part, it really is part of a true trilogy, bringing everything you love about the artist together, in a small 5-track EP package.
