Power pop

Still from Aly & AJ – Star Maps YouTube

Pop duo Aly & AJ puts together an army of renowned drag queens and actors (from Silicon Valleyto Shameless) in their new video “Star Maps” – a glimpse of Hollywood in a post #MeToo era. Directed by Amanda Crew, the video shows the sibling duo embody the classic Hollywood flair but with a bolder and self-empowering vibe that serves as a sophisticated mid finger to misogyny. Enjoy:

Speaking of the track, the duo shared, “we wrote this song in 2017 when the Harvey Weinstein story broke as an ode to the #MeToo movement. We felt we needed to write a revenge song for the innocent victims of Hollywood’s abusers.”

“Star Maps” is from Aly & AJ’s latest EP Sanctuary, which is out now. The gals are currently on their North America tour and will be hitting Europe next month:
