What’s in a name? Well, a name can harbor past trauma or an identity that never felt true to you. With their new song “Talking ‘Bout Bri,” pop singer-songwriter MegaGoneFree burns down her former life and depicts how such a revelatory act led to unmatched freedom and strength. “I killed that bitch Brianna, and with her body, went her name / So if you see me IRL, don’t call me that again,” they sing on the pre-chorus. Alongside the circus-inspired cover art, the song’s backbone borrows brassy sounds and a vaudeville tilt, giving it an exhilarating musicality.
