Last month I wrote a piece about how Ali Barter joined the Inertia Music family, well, she is finally back with a new track called ‘Girlie Bits’, and it’s a fun track that you can listen to for yourself above.
Just so you know – even though the title implies – the song actually has nothing to do with parts of the anatomy, in fact, according to Ali, she says the song is about the connotation of ‘femininity’ and how wrong it is:
“Girlie Bits has nothing to do with body parts, it’s about the cage of what we expect of women: girlie guitar parts, girlie singing, hair; this idea of ‘femininity’ and how to fit within it. But women are not some gentle, watered down version of men. We do it our own way. We work really hard to write good songs and play great gigs – only to have people critique our clothes and the look on our faces, instead of the music.”
Ali was able to to fit in a reference to Salt n Pepa in there, but I guess you’re going to have to find out where that is in there for yourself.
