‘She’s gonna cause you so much drama…’ it’s a sultry warning from songwriter Hen, delivered with confidence, on her new single ‘In Red’. The latest from the Adelaide artist is an empowering pop tune that celebrates strong women while breaking down the stereotypes surrounding the ‘hot girl’.
‘The Woman in Red’ is an image that has been used throughout various decades of music, film and pop culture to exoticise and fetishise women – it’s the associated image with sexuality and an unapologetic ownership of feminine sensuality that once would have painted a woman as a harlot or any kind of manipulative. Now, these traits are ones of strength, traits that Hen has brought to record with her new music.
In celebration of the release, Hen has given Forté her ultimate Women In Red playlist.
