Typhoid Rosie premiered more new music from its latest record this week.
The band debuted its new single, ‘Defend Your Temple’ Friday. The song is the second song from the band’s forthcoming album, Queen of Swords, which is scheduled for release Aug 13. Its premiere comes less than a month after the band premiered the album’s lead single/title track.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Defend Your Temple’ is just as much a punk style anthem as ‘Queen of Swords.’ Its poppy sound and stylistic approach is an up tempo work that is certain to get stuck in audiences’ minds.
The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s infectious musical arrangement is a feminist anthem of sorts, according to front woman Rosie Rebel.
“I would never sit a little girl down in front of a glowing screen to watch Cinderella,” she said. “It’s not that I don’t believe in a good love story, it’s just the fact that generations of women have grown up with this idea that if we play dress up that some magical prince will come and save us. It’s a sham fairy tale about a girl who cries and waits for other people to come and save her- the mice, a fairy godmother, and finally a prince. She’s afraid that the prince won’t love her because she doesn’t have the right clothes. How is this any different than the plot of Pretty Woman?”
Added Rebel, “These are nice tales to get the kids shopping at a young age, but let’s be real and remember that all of this dress up won’t buy you love, but it does suggest that we should be seeking validation outside of ourselves. This is a magic formula that is worth billions: we see just enough airbrushed models every day – to keep us feeling just ugly enough to keep us shopping. Truth be told, there’s not enough diet tricks, ass-cheek squats, breast implants, fake eyelashes, high heels, spanks and wrinkle creams to ever make someone love you. Real love is way deeper than that, it’s not so fleeting, shallow, or superficial. When your looks have faded, love is the thing that will drag its 90 year old balls across the kitchen floor just to kiss your stank breath on your aging face. But we never see this love story, because we’ve been told thousands of times a day by advertising companies that aging is ugly, “anti-aging.” You’ll be surprised the impact these glowing images have had on our self-esteem and images of beauty. Personally, I think it’s so fucking sad, to discover that for an entire girl’s life it is way more profitable for companies to make her feel ugly than it is to build her up into becoming the magical person she was meant to be.
