Review: Jodie Reid – ‘Suffer You’

Jodie Reid’s latest single ‘Suffer You’ is both hypnotic and scathing in its rejection of those who think it’s okay to play games with other peoples’ hearts.

The single, taken from Reid’s upcoming album Robust Rebellion, is a break-away from the Irish-folk strains that made up her most recent album Celtic Commotion towards a more conventional folk sound that doesn’t sacrifice the Joburg based songwriter’s inherent individuality.

Underneath the nuanced, subtly evocative vocals lies an almost hypnotic composition that cycles between lullaby-comfort and unflinching frustration, guiding the emotional journey as Reid lambastes the narcissists of the world with a voice rich in tone and emotion.

There’s a dynamism to the vocals that makes them difficult to ignore that’s both tough-as-nails and vulnerable in its honesty, the lyrics clearly coming from a lot of introspection.

‘Suffer You’ captures a very specific feeling made up of a myriad of conflicting emotions; frustration and vulnerability colliding with anger and pain to create the rush that comes with standing up for yourself.
