UK alt-rockers Hands Off Gretel have a released a video for their new single, “My Size.”
A searing 3 and-a-half minute grunge-fueled stomp, the track showcases Hands Off Gretel frontwoman and creative powerhouse Lauren Tate’s sublime rock n’ roll rasp, and her way with a empowering lyric.
If the Alice In Wonderland meets Riot Grrrl video is anything to go by, Tate also has a taste for miniaturised band-mates.
The vocalist and songwriter told Loud Noises Magazine: “The song is about knowing the adults will never understand, that they will never see what I see. That’s how I saw it when I was younger, when my mum would tell me to tidy up. It’s a refusal to grow up. It’s a frustration that I felt. It felt really good to smash up the dolls house at the end of the video. I’m like a pissed off little girl. I prefer how children get annoyed, how they stamp their feet, how they stick out their tongue… that’s what it’s all about for me.”
