LOUD WOMEN is delighted to bring you today the premiere of the beautiful and poignant new single from Themme Fatale. ‘The Girl That Never Was’ is out tomorrow:
“This song is about grappling with what reality could have been if I transitioned earlier. I used the metaphor of accidentally (or not?) killing a girl in a car accident because that’s what the hesitation feels like every day when I see my body mutilated by puberty.
The track is taken from forthcoming album Let’s Destroy Themme:
It’s basically a kind of DIY musical diary investigating dysphoria, self-sabotage, loneliness, etc., and letting all those negative feelings go. I’ve spent so long diminishing myself and putting myself down that I wanted to use it as an opportunity to let something go into the world that might be rough around the edges, but it expresses a lot of raw emotions in a cathartic way that I hope will resonate with people who feel similarly.
Themme Fatale describes themselves as “a nonbinary, genderless and genreless artist who uses their music to experiment with whatever they feel like”. Really looking forward to hearing this talented young artist’s album when it appears!
