BROODS’ Georgia Nott has released a new track, “Need A Man,” from her all-female collaboration, “The Venus Project” today. “Need a Man” is another emotionally raw and haunting track that finds Georgia questioning the irony of the notion that a woman needs a man to protect her from other men. Georgia explains, “this song is inspired by all the times I have been told “it’s not safe for you as a woman.” Whether it has been travelling, going to a party, or simply walking alone. Rules that didn’t seem apply to men. Rules that taught me to watch my back when I walked past a group of men, clenching my fists and planning how I would defend myself if I was attacked. I am frustrated because I don’t feel that I should have to take preventative measures to feel safe around men and to expect the worst in men. Nothing will change until these acts of intimidation, exploitation, harassment and assault are called out and no longer tolerated. Nothing will change until the attackers are held accountable, instead of their victims.”
“The Venus Project: Vol. 1” will feature “Won’t Hurt,” the first track Georgia released from the project last month, featured in playlists by The New York Times, MTV, NYLON and more.
