Daily Spinn: Lora Kelley Challenges Beauty Standards on ‘Beautiful That Way’
As we age, it becomes easier to be comfortable in one’s own skin. This is despite the lofty standards of beauty that mainstream society often holds — especially for women.
Lora Kelley is unafraid to challenge those standards, and does so on her new single, “Beautiful That Way.” The gently-plodding folk-pop tune runs through a list of ways women are expected to be “perfect,” and leads Kelley to embrace herself for exactly who she is.
“As I stepped into my 30’s, I felt this invitation to come back to myself,” Kelley said. “I had to peel back the pieces, layer by layer, and ask myself what it looks like to exist from the inside out.”
Perfectly timed for International Women’s Month, “Beautiful That Way” is the latest single from Kelley’s forthcoming album, Domystique, coming later this spring. Check it out as today’s Daily Spinn!
