Get an exclusive look at the video for 'Minister's Daughter' below.
Canadian singer-songwriter Laura Belyea returns with a powerful new video for her latest single, 'Minister's Daughter' – taking aim at inequality, systemic societal problems and the hypocrisies of Christianity.
In a subtle nod to Quentin Tarantino, the video is split into separate chapters – each section encouraging viewers to question religious leaders and organisation.
First launching her career on Toronto's indie scene with her band Scorpion Chainsaw Operation Booze Orgy (aka Scobo), Belyea moved to Dublin several years ago, were she began writing and recording as a solo artist.
According to Belyea, 'Minister's Daughter' "is about how religion has controlled and exploited people's faith for financial gain, oppression, misogyny, racism and homophobia."
The politically-charged track is set to appear on her upcoming debut album, set to be released this year, on which "all the songs have angry and rebellious fuelled lyrics and themes".
"Writing songs is a way for me to vent my frustrations and challenge the status quo," she adds.
