Ahead of the June 21st release of her new EP, Introspection, UMI drops the nothing short of beautiful song, “Pretty Girl hi!”
While less than two minutes long, Pretty Girl hi! manifests a certain kind of dopamine rush with every listen and repeat, through both the smooth flow of UMI’s voice and the lyrical content.
A coming-out tune released during the height of Pride Month, Pretty Girl hi!’s beauty is shown through the lyrics’ simplicity, “Pretty girl hi! / You certified / To catch a vibe /And fuck up my world, see / We could be, we could be anything.” But its simplicity does not come at the expense of meaningful and touching lyrics.
While the entire tune is a glimpse into UMI’s personal mind, the message is one that is extremely rich in relatability. How many of us have fantasized about a special someone, constantly wishing that they were ours, imagining a life where “We could dance in just our baggy jeans / We could smoke under the laser beams”?
