“This song is for everyone who trades their diamonds for volcanic rock” – Anjulie
In celebration of National Women’s Month and ahead of International Women’s Day, Anjulie releases the official music video for “Dancing With Girls,” which is written, produced, directed and performed by women.
Anjulie enlisted pop singer-songwriter/actress/model Lola Blanc to direct the video; an artist whose music and vision has inspired her for years. Also in the video, are dancers/actors Alex Marshall-Brown, Linda Chen and Alita LaShae, who is featured on the single’s cover art.
Anjulie is a multi-faceted, culture-clashing artist whose musical scope spans from ambient electro house to singer-songwriter & political folk. With “Dancing With Girls” – and the accompanying mix (Listen To “DWG” Here) – she uses her voice to illuminate a startling reality many women experience.
“Dancing with Girls is about the unshakeable solace, safety, freedom, and solidarity found in female friendship. The story we were told and sold for years is one of false scarcity – there can only be a select few so we have to claw at the breadcrumbs of power by tearing each other down. In reality, there has always been a volcano of unwavering support and encouragement between us that helped activate a thick, red-hot lava of storytelling and art spreading out defiantly and revealing our deepest pain, anger, sadness, vulnerability, and empathy. Anything feminine, those things are seen as mushy and gooey were cast as weak, feeble and embarrassing. Turns out they are strong. Turns out they are fiery and explosive. Turns out all that emotional magma hardens to create something new. This song is for everyone who trades their diamonds for volcanic rock,” says Anjulie.
It’s a fitting message from an artist who spends her free time providing strength to others, whether it’s for the Canadian Woman’s Foundation and UN Women or the women’s songwriting collective, SVNG (Songwriters Under New Government).
A platinum selling, Juno-Award winning and VMA nominated artist who has also written VICE & Huffington Post and accomplished songwriter (Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson Diplo, and Zedd, to name a few), Anjulie is a woman whose talents extend across creative boundaries. She’s a long time (and hardworking) advocate for women in and out of the entertainment industry.
