‘You Don’t Own Me’ was released as a single in late January, with Baron-Gracie describing the track as “a song for women.”
Mancunian pop-punk band Pale Waves have released a new video for their recent single ‘You Don’t Own Me’.
The clip is the fifth music video the band have released in support of their second studio album, Who Am I?, directed by frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie alongside Kelsi Luck.
The video showcases the band performing in a heavily-graffitied room, interspersed with shots of Baron-Gracie singing against a blue backdrop.
“I...wanted to say a ‘fuck you’ to everyone that plays by these fake delusional rules that women and gender need to fit inside a specific box,” Baron-Grace said of the January single.
Other Who Am I? singles shared include ‘Change’, ‘She’s My Religion’, ‘Easy’ and ‘Fall To Pieces’.
In the Hot Press review of Who Am I?, Baron-Grace's excavated vulnerability was praised:
"With a diehard legion of die-hard fans, the pressure for Who Am I? was presumably high, and the record delivers what it promised. There’s the presence of a newfound self-assuredness in Baron-Gracie since coming out, with the 26-year-old’s bravery also resulting in emotional tracks addressing mental health and sobriety struggles."
