Sister Void’s new single, platinum dress, tells the story of a girl who lives in the image of glamor. She’s charming and confident on the outside, but tormented by a dysfunctional relationship and substance/emotional problems on the inside. The only thing she wants is to make it to tomorrow’s parties where she can forget it all and shine in her platinum dress.
I believe that the song is an anthem for all the women out there who are struggling under the weight of society’s expectations. It’s a reminder that we’re all human, and that it’s ok to be flawed.
Gender equality is something that’s been fought for and talked about for centuries, and while we’ve come a long way, there’s still a lot of work to be done. Society expects women to behave in a certain way and fulfill certain roles, and if they don’t conform to these expectations, they’re often criticized. What’s even more frustrating is that this standard isn’t applied to men in the same way.
You can definitely feel the dreampop/alt-rock energy in platinum dress. The guitars create a soothing atmosphere, while the drums provide a driving beat that’ll keep you moving. And the vocals? They’re absolutely sublime, with a range and power that’ll leave you breathless.
