Mette Narrative Wants to Be Witnessed

There was no missing Mette Towley’s clean shaven head of fluid dance movements in Rihanna and N.E.R.D’s “Lemon” music video that took the internet by storm in 2017. But recently, the Minnesota-born artist has made the leap from movement to behind the mic. “Dance was and still is the crux of how people know me,” the performer, who goes by the name of Mette Narrative, explains. “But I’ve always seen myself as an artist who wants to share my ideas and connect with people on a broader level, and I get to do that with music.”

Her upbeat launch track, “Mama’s Eye,” was inspired by reuniting with her mother after a long stretch of being apart during the pandemic. Honing in on a new form of self-expression, Mette Narrative couldn’t be more excited to work on this side of her craft: “Music is a space where I get to share even more of myself with the world. To be witnessed is such an important thing for me as a performer.”
