Petrol Girls have released a video for ‘Survivor’ ahead of their UK tour

The band recently joined Hassle Records.
Petrol Girls have shared a video for ‘Survivor’, a track inspired by the movement against sexual violence.

Vocalist Ren Aldridge explains: “The people who’ve spoken up so courageously about their experiences have broken the silence that has protected abusers in the past, often at massive risk to their own safety and well being. I hope that their bravery inspires the cultural shift in attitudes that is so desperately needed.”

“For the video I set up a collaboration between Andrew Northrop who I’ve really enjoyed making music videos with previously, and painter Mariah Pearl,” she adds. “The way that Mariah’s paintings play with the surface of the canvas gives me a really strong feeling of a clandestine power that refuses to be captured or identified. For me, this reflects whisper networks and the erupting movement against sexual violence. It’s like the tree roots that push up through the tarmac.”
