TUNE VENUS - Deranged
Deranged is an embodiment of our anger toward the treatment of women not only in the music industry, but day to day life. Us girls, are NOT a novelty, trend OR object, and we’re often branded as ‘psychos’ or ‘angry feminists’, so I guess we’re playing on the word ‘Deranged’ in that sense.
We had a lot of shit from people about being all women in a male dominated environment, people essentialising us and reducing our success down to our gender…’they only get gigs cos they’re girls’ or some shit. When you’re in a ‘girl band’ you want so badly just to be labelled as a ‘band’ like everybody else because music should not be gender restrictive, but you also want to shout it out to the world, that you’re you know, a girl, in a band.
We also want people to become empowered when they hear the lyrics and the thrashy riffs, we tried to write it so it belonged in an area that made you angry but in a motivational and positively empowering way, you know? There’s a grey area somewhere there.
All in all, it’s a big fuck you to anyone who told us we couldn’t do this, because we damn well are, and so can you.
