Shygirl is no stranger to exploring sexuality and desire in her music, and Coochie (a bedtime story) is no exception. In a soft, sweet voice fitting for a lullaby, Shygirl describes how entranced she is by this intimate region. She thinks about it constantly, hears it calling to her, and will drop everything and run to it when it calls to her. In the music video, she dons a white, frilly peasant dress with an elaborate headpiece made of pillows, and decorative pink acrylics. In the night, she rides in a magical, pink horse-drawn carriage fit for a princess, professing her love for “the coochie.”
Shygirl has described Nymph as an exploration into her more vulnerable, sensitive side, and believes that she’s reaching out to listeners in a siren-like way. Coochie (a bedtime story) fits right into this musical trajectory as it sounds like an entrancing musical fantasy. With its soft sweetness – and hyperpop sound – she showcases a new, more intimate way of expressing desire than we have previously heard from the London native. When Nymph arrives on September 30, we can definitely expect to hear an even more sensual and vulnerable side to Shygirl.
