Many songs with an inspirational message sound grand and resounding and, well, joyful. It can feel like positive messages exist in a genre of their own, instead of working in darker, more authentic spaces. Kirrah Amosa manages to bring her message through a darker and more chill ambiance.
After dealing with anxiety and working to find coping mechanisms, Amosa wrote “Undefeated”, a song that pushes those who are struggling to reach out. The Australian songwriter and R&B artist wants you to know there is no weakness in that choice. For her own part, Amosa found help through exercise, a tactic that is showcased in the video.
“Undefeated” isn’t just about reaching out; the song pushes the listener to think about all their past successes and draw from those memories in the face of adversity. With slick beats and even slicker vocals — Amosa’s voice seems to move where it wants, pushing steady before the rhythmic chorus — the song is soft and intense at once. There is a power in straddling both.
Featured in the clip — which shows Amosa boxing and standing regal on a building with a gorgeous view stretched out behind her — is the Flyweight Youth National and Oceania Champion, Monique. Who better to showcase the power and strength of the video, which places a particular emphasis on the strength of women.
