‘No Pressure': Coco Morier, Songwriter for Britney, Selena and Demi, Goes it Solo
No, I'm not just rattling off genuinely incredible pop songs: all of those tracks were co-penned by the talented Coco Morier.
Chances are, you've been listening to Coco-penned pop music for years. And now, it's time for the talented singer-songwriter to shine in her own right.
Following the release of her debut EP Strangers May Kiss back in 2012 as part of INGRID, the artist collective alongside acts like Lykke Li and Miike Snow, Coco's returned today with "No Pressure," the first release from her debut full-length LP Dreamer, due out on July 8 via Kobalt, which we're happy to premiere here on PopCrush.
"'No Pressure' is all about its deep funky groove," Morier explains.
Within the first few seconds, it's safe to say that's an accurate assessment of the slick, laidback disco-tinged tune full of playful chants ("girls freak and the boys go WHOA!") and sexy bass licks; her pressure-free delivery recalling the featherlight flirtation of Annie and Kylie Minogue.
"Something to make you want to roller-skate in a pink satin jumpsuit, looking all hot and bitchy like Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface," Coco says of the track's intention. "Sweaty Friday night make-out sessions and disco doll love affairs."
