I’ve watched this magical new BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session countless times yesterday, and it’s far too good a performance not to share with you, too. Get ready for an epic dose of girl power as drops on her single IDGAF, with a long list of some of the best female pop artists of the moment in tow. Charli XCX, Zara Larsson, MØ, and Alma join Dua Lipa on the performance. We’ve been early supporters of everyone involved, and to see them all come together perfectly gives me tingles. I’ve seen people comparing this video to the Spice Girls. Indeed, it’s an inspiring, empowering, and much endearing performance of a wildly infectious pop song, and we simply can’t get enough of it.

There sure are a lot of exciting female lead rock projects rising out of Australia right now. Brisbane four piece VOIID brings us a whole lot of riotous spirit and rebellious fortitude on Silly Girl. It’s a gritty, spunky garage punk anthem bursting with fuzzy guitars and unruly energy that recalls the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Speedy Ortiz, and Sløtface. Silly Girl arrives just as the band is preparing to head out on their Australian East Coast Summer Tour. The chunky chugging track is based on the “countless amount of moronic things VOIID had to deal with as a band, it’s a massive f*ck you to people who think they are better, act above you or are just an outright awful person.” We all know sanctimonious people like that, and now we can blast this rowdy gem when we’re sick and fed up with their antics. You can listen to VOIID’s 2016 EP Pussy Oriented on Soundcloud, here.
