Brisbane artist Hartley has been a busy girl recently and she’s just dropped her third single in four months, ‘Own’.
Released on Friday, the track follows on from her breakout track ‘Used To’ back in August and its successor ‘Mind’.
And it’s another that holds deep and personal meaning; the struggles she’s faced as a female artist trying to make a go of it.
“When I was starting music in an intimidating, male-dominated industry,” she reveals. “I felt powerless and already misjudged as a female vocalist and producer. I struggled with these feelings for a really long time.
“But I realised that I didn’t need anybody’s approval. If they didn’t like what I was doing, it was their problem, not mine. That’s when I wrote ‘Own’.”
Suffice to say, it’s another impressive outing.
Take a listen to ‘Own’ below.
