Adelaide’s own Jess Kent is stepping up and kicking some serious ass with her just-released new single ‘Girl’.
“I wrote the song ‘Girl’ when I was feeling the pressure from society to ‘fit in’ and fit a certain stereotype to be the girl people expect me to be,” Jess explains in a statement.
“I have days when I feel like a tomboy, days when I don’t want to wear makeup, and days when I feel girly and want to dress up and be feminine. More than anything I don’t want to wait for permission to have my own voice and use my music to say how I feel.
“I want to feel empowered to make my own choices about how I go through this world and I encourage all girls to do the same.”
Naturally, the single is a pop-fuelled call to arms. And a bloody strong one at that.
According to her label EMI, ‘Girl’ is the lead single from a forthcoming debut album, which we should expect to see at some stage in 2019.
