Themme Fatale: The Girl That Never Was – new music PREMIERE

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!

Themme Fatale: Be Around – new music premiere

LOUD WOMEN are honoured today to bring you the first listen of a stunning new single from New York’s Themme Fatale. Be Around is out today, and it’s an empowering story about overcoming transphobic family hostility. Themme Fatale/Jack tells us:

“I have a better relationship with this family member now, but this song was written when I was asked to not come around them when I was wearing the more feminine clothes that I wanted to. They didn’t understand my nonbinary identity, but still said they were upset that I wasn’t really reaching out to them. This was my response – if I can’t be myself, I’m not coming around. Don’t put that on me! I wanted to write something for the trans people who felt like they had to compensate or compartmentalize pieces of their identity to appease others. Demand the respect you deserve and surround yourself with people who will respect your authentic self!”
