GIRLI Announces New EP “Damsel In Distress”, Shares New Song “Ruthless”
- London-based singer-songwriter Milly Toomey, aka GIRLI announced her upcoming EP “Damsel In Distress” would be released on October 22, 2021.
The 5-track EP is her first project since the 2019 debut album “Odd One Out”.
From the EP, she unveiled a new song “Ruthless” along with a music video on September 17th.
It was written by Amelia Toomey, Eddy Atlantis and Kaity Rae.
GIRLI said of the song, “Ruthless is about losing naivety and childish excitement and having to face the cold hard truth of the world – learning about deception, fake friendships, having to grow a thick skin and lose the happy go lucky girl you were to rise to the top; having to become ruthless. It's especially something that so many women face in the creative industries, as they get trodden on by money-hungry people who don't give a shit and only want to exploit them – a lot of the time men or women brainwashed into hating on other women by the patriarchal structures of our society.”
- The video was directed by Kassandra Powell. Milly Toomey said of the video, “The concept of the Ruthless music video is a queen who's been through so much bullshit and ousted from kingdom and now she doesn't give a fuck as she rules over her post-apocalyptic junkyard kingdom. I chose to style myself and the cast in 18th century princess attire, to hint at Sofia Coppila's Marie Antoinette and Vivienne Westwood's punk take on this era while also nodding to Marie Antoinette herself, who was a woman who was scapegoated and hated by society – this video is pink, punk, anti-establishment, pure ruthless rebellion.”
