It only took me a few seconds to decide that I had to write about Ace Harper recently when she launched her debut single “Neon Heart“. Her style is fresh and inviting it really, shines out with a tantalising, allure which bubbles over with the confidence of an established artist. The image is a glam pop diva, and although it is a striking form of self-expression, the lyrics and music speak directly with themes of empowerment and are translated into, performance art. Follow up single “Mouth Wide Open” fairs no different.
Musically a comparison to Gwen Stefani doesn’t seem far off the mark, but generally, it seems Ace, is inspired by quite a line-up of female pop-rock icons. Ace has a uniqueness about her which most definitely has a bold look, in a fashion-forward direction. A distinctive image will help to get her message heard, but the lyrics do have the muscle to stand up on their own.
The thought-provoking message in the rallying empowerment anthem “Mouth Wide Open” is about living in the moment, declaring who you are as women and getting your voice heard. The track has a playful groove and a bouncy lingering beat while the supporting music video is visually evocative with strikingly symbolic imagery. Ace is just my kind of spokesperson a bit edgy with confidence, someone who will metaphorically kick down doors for equal rights and trailblaze an undeniably resilient message that all woman deserve to feel good about themselves.
