Premiere: Otherwoman – “FINE”


Out today, “FINE” is a breezy pop delight from Ontario-based artist Otherwoman. Lush synths and suave guitar jams concoct an inviting beginning, perking up thereafter with added synth-y effervescence and backing vocal effects. “Every time we stumble we’ll be just fine,” the hooky chorus touts, exuding a shimmering confidence. “Pick ourselves up and be just fine.” “FINE” lyrically shows an enjoyably upbeat perseverance amidst an assortment of guitars and synths fit for a sunny day, driving a melodic earworm from Otherwoman.

Otherwoman elaborates on the track:

“This song was born in quarantine from analog keyboards and restless minds in Hamilton, Ontario. Over the months, with contributions from friends and family here and there, FINE evolved into a perfect song to close out one of the weirdest summers of our generation.”
