Emulating the physiological rush we feel during a fight-or-flight response, Aussie poptress Woodes captures that intensity-kicking momentum in her single “Run For It” – a syncopated piece of synthpop that smashes ancient gender expectations (that for some effing reason still persists in society). But rather than the flight response, she pumps up your fight response by stacking up chunks of adrenaline-struck beats and hauntingly crispy voice. Stream below:

“The lyrics stem from accepting things being within the nature of certain people or genders.” she continues, “From being called out from cars, to men expecting women to act a certain way depending on how they are dressed… A warning. Signifying things are changing.”

The single is the follow up of Woodes’ 2016 selft-titled EP, which has already accumulated more than 3 million strams on Spotify and topped iTunes chart, including #1 in Singapore Altenrative Album charts. As of now, the songstress has shows in Australia coming up:

7/8 – Workers Club (Melbourne, Australia)

7/14 – Black Bear Lodge (Brisbane, Australia)

7/15 – Brighton Up Bar (Sydney, Australia)
