Party Fears: Money – video of the day

Today’s video of the day is a newie from the solidly-awesome Party Fears – Money.

Their most punk release yet, the song is features hard-hitting lines, painfully recognisable as the advice young girls are given about sexual assault:

We’re told to shout fire. Every girl knows when not to take a shower

Party Fears’ Maggie Devlin explains

There are these moments of “compromise” when you’re a woman that feel so horribly wrong. Refusing a come-on by lying and saying you have a boyfriend, for example. But there are also capitulations we make every day; these little blips of moral grey. And cash is usually at the centre of it: in the things we buy or the wage we earn. So it’s a song about money and a song about power.
