Tedious & Brief is the moniker used by Chicago-native singer and songwriter Jamie Jacobsen. The 24 year-old’s music is influenced by her upbringing and immediate environment and this is well encapsulated in her latest single.
The alt-pop track is called “Tired Work” and it’s production is as hard-hitting as the artist’s lyrics.
Jamie reveals, “Recently I had a really bad boss that abused his position of authority and threatened me when I tried to quit. That was followed up by another boss who made it a habit of bullying the people under their authority in the office. Such horrible work environments—and I know I’m not even remotely alone in those experiences.”
She adds: “‘Tired Work’ is a proverbial middle finger to those people and anyone in a position of authority like them who use their power to abuse, threaten and belittle the people they’ve deemed below them.“
