Das schwedische Schwester-Duo First Aid Kit hat zum heutigen Weltfrauentag einen neuen Song veröffentlicht.
Das Statement zu „You Are The Problem Here“ liest sich auf ihrer Facebook-Seite wie folgt:
„Today is the International Women’s Day and the theme of the year is #BeBoldForChange. “You Are the Problem Here” isn’t a typical First Aid Kit-song. It’s angry and direct. It’s a song written out of despair. After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them. Our message is clear and should not be controversial in the least: if you rape, you are the problem. Alcohol is not the problem. So called “youth culture” is not the problem. You are. And you always have a choice.
“You Are the Problem Here” will be available on all digital platforms Friday March 10th. A portion of proceeds will be donated to @WomenforWomen International – an amazing organization we’re honored to support.
Thank you Tucker Martine for producing and mixing the track, and Emy Storey for the cover art.“
