"Man From The Magazine" is an infuriated ballad about music industry misogyny. The first verse chronicles a specific encounter between Este Haim and a sexist male journalist who asked her whether she "makes the same faces in bed" as she does on stage when playing bass.
"I see men making faces on stage," Este told The Independent
, "and it's a reaction from feeling the music. I made the mistake early on of looking at comments on live performances, which I don't do anymore, and all these comments, mostly men, were like, 'Urgh, ugly, grotesque, get her off the f---ing stage, why is she making those faces?' I think some men have a problem with seeing a woman enjoying herself. That's threatening to them."
