“Pussy, power, power to the pussy!” It’s international women’s day and while women aren’t defined by what’s below the belt (shoutout to trans women!) this song is a rally cry of a pop banger that I can’t get enough of! It takes that crazy collision of rock and pop that Sleigh Bells used to rock so hard and gives it a more traditional pop structure that I fuck with more than I can even put into words.
Plus the power over men that they sing about makes me think about all of the powerful women in my life… I have friends that are killer producers, pr agents, journalists, vocalists, artists, the list goes on and on and on…they’re such talented people that start out with less respect than a dude would in their field because of a bullshit patriarchy yet they’re more talented than virtually everyone around them!! That’s not even considering how much shit they have to go through everyday from harassment to discrimination and everything in between…
I’m in awe of how not only my female friends but females all around the world straight up kill shit day in day out with the odds stacked against them. They have so much more resolve than I ever have or will, so here’s a middle finger to the patriarchy and a massive shoutout to all the women across the world!
