‘Shoulder Pads’, the song is a generous ode to possibility, and Amy Jo’s most eagerly anticipated, and vibrant release to date.
“When I was growing up and navigating the world, many people assigned narrow, vague labels to my personality,” says Amy Jo, “so Shoulder Pads is my perspective on the good girl/bad boy romance trope”- the song was inspired by the 2019 movie, After – “but there is the added element of the metaphor – shoulder pads. I had seen shoulder pads making their rounds again, especially with younger women. I’m going to be honest – I’m not sure how I feel about the trend. It’s a crude metaphor, but if shoulder pads can make a comeback after all those years in the closet, then why not take a chance on someone who might not be perfect for you? Or someone who represents a world you don’t understand?”.
