Aussie artist clovo addresses gender issues in her new empowering single “Girls.” Written on International Women’s Day, the track dives into hefty topics of assault, discrimination, and objectification that a lot of women face today. “I wrote this song on International Women’s Day and being inspired by that, it outlines issues of women being sexualised and objectified in society and it is an anthem for all women to have a voice against sexual assault and discrimination. I was listening to a lot of Grimes, Mia Rodriguez and Billie Eilish at the time and felt empowered to be part of this revolution of women speaking their mind. I always feel inspired when I hear songs from women taking a stand with their music, and I wanted to do the same and hopefully inspire other women,” she shared.
Along with the single, clovo has also unveiled the video for it where she takes us into a dystopic world.
“The music video portrays the toxicity of a male dominated culture, set in a dystopian parallel universe where women are subjects to men, the video narrates clovo as a prisoner trying to escape, only to be caught and put back in her ‘place’ in society.”
