My favourite few words at the moment. Not that long ago I would regularly claim that I didn’t like girl band music, or solo girls for that matter. I thought all their voices sounded the same, or they would all just be whinging about their unsuccessful loves. Wasn’t interested in that.
Nothing could beat Angus – and that’s solo Angus, minus Julia.
But gosh, this year has basically redefined me as a music lover. Out of nowhere Lorde and HAIM, among others, have stolen my heart. These are powerful girls, unafraid to say what they think and be a bit different. My kind of hero. That’s the sort of girl I can aim to be.
And even though I am definitely not a feminist, I am all for powerful and successful women, and I love to see these achievements displayed so widely. Absolute greatness. We all have a bar to reach for now.
