Los Angeles based Lauren Scott-Phillips' latest single is meant to challenge what is considered to be feminine. "Handsome Woman" is a stripped down folk song. It's just Scott-Phillips and her guitar. Despite being as bare as folk can be, it's not a traditional, old timey folk song but more of a mainstream, neo-folk, singer-songwriter song. Being so stripped down gives "Handsome Woman" such a personal and intimate feel that matches lyrics that sound like they're being sung directly to her wife in their bedroom.
Lauren Scott-Phillips says of the new single:
“My wife is very feminine, and I’m pretty feminine too, but I have some masculine traits, and I really just didn’t know how I wanted to be described. I just want to normalize the idea that whoever you want to be, that’s who you should be."
