Her most accomplished and irresistible effort to date, ‘Shatterproof’ is a sign of the times for this artist on the cusp of breaking through.
From the opening moments, you can tell that this is a completely new sound in comparison to Johnson’s previous releases. From the picked lead guitar part to the future nostalgia-esque bassline, the track radiates a totally new vibe that forces you to smile despite it all. The rhythm section is a particular highlight, locked in and providing the perfect disco / pop foundations from which Jemma’s stellar vocal performance can really take flight.
Perhaps her most empowering track to date, the single focuses on Jemma’s own personal battles and new-found invincibility, arriving after a personal experience at the discovery that she really is Shatterproof. What’s more, is that the song is about so much more than Jemma’s own trials and tribulations and hopes to spread a message of self-worth and female empowerment in the face of adversity; something which many of us can relate to after the difficulties of the last year and making this single more important than ever.
