MEGAN BLACK delivers an anthem of women empowerment on her new single ‘MOTHER. SISTER. LOVER’.
Channelling musical heroes of the past such as Janis Joplin, Hendrix and Joni Mitchell in her brooding, beguiling 70s rock sound, the powerful instrumentation is matched by its strong message. Honouring the experiences of female-identifying and non-binary individuals, it sticks two fingers up to the patriarchy and the unrealistic standards placed on women.
Reflecting on the songwriting process, the Edinburgh-based performer says: “We’re taught from a very young age that women should compete with one another – you have to be prettier, smarter, funnier, more talented. I wanted to use this song to spread the message that we don’t need to fight against each other. The women in my life bring me more strength, wisdom, and love than I could ever begin to describe. There is so much power in us coming together.”
She adds: “This song is for everyone who has experienced this in any way. You don’t have to identify as a woman to know the power of womanhood and feel part of it. This is not an attack, it’s a wake-up call”.
