Gia Margaret – “Babies”

Gia Margaret’s wonderful debut album, There’s Always Glimmer, is getting a worldwide re-release today, and it includes a fresh track called “Babies,” which was originally recorded as a demo a few years back. It’s sparse and haunting, as Margaret hums about societal expectations and generational consequences. “It’s hard to equate the weight, the fear of fate you were given,” she sings on its opening line.

“Partly why I wrote [“Babies”] was because someone was always having something to say about what I should be doing with my life in regards to [my] biological clock,” Margaret says of the track. “It’s hard enough to get paid less than men do and to ask ourselves these questions as we try to navigate through life.”
