Fantasy flickers between gritty alt-rock and serene, melodic pop. The song echoes the familiar themes of heartbreak, identity, and growth that can also be seen in her past self-portraiture and personal photography work.

About the single she says: "'Fantasy' is really about being frustrated with dating culture and the performances that women (especially women dating men) have to put on, almost out of necessity, until it hits a point where it all becomes too draining. At the same time, it's also a song about the power of women, the power of illusion and seduction, the power of confidence, and the power of being anonymous."

Listen to Fantasy on Spotify and Apple Music. Follow rlyblonde on Instagram and Twitter.
