The #MeToo movement and its impact on our society have been immense. Artists have been using their craft as a means of therapy and as a way to speak out about the issues that plague our country. Portland’s Camp Crush shares a track “November Skin” that was inspired by a conversation with a fan after a show.
One night after a show, Deale previously explained from a press release, a man came up to her and asked her what makes her “have it” and why other music industry women don’t “have it.”
The lead single “November Skin” from the EP is a passionate feminist song that helps to shed the superficial assumptions about women and “how we [women] are always in constant judgment of being enough or not,” Deale explains. The music video is a visual and symbolic representation “to show different superficial types of the same woman, playing into how people like to pigeonhole women into an easy definition. Each character is represented by single word descriptions, like moody, spunky, cold, sexy; different exteriors, same interior.”
The husband-and-wife duo of Jennifer Deale (synths/keys/vocals) and Chris Spicer (drums/vocals) are preparing the release of their upcoming EP, She’s Got It, out May 18. Watch the video below for “November Skin” below.
