We have a treat for you this International Women's Day! We - Claire, Isabelle and Miko - have put together a playlist of some of our favourite tracks by women. Hijack the office sound system and blast these tracks today!
1. LADIES FIRST - Queen Latifah feat. Monie Love
Who better to open this playlist than Queen Latifah with one of her anthems? All hail the queen!
2. E.S.P. - Shonen Knife
Led by Naoko Yamano, Shonen Knife have been making music since 1981. We go back to 1997 for this gem.
3. BOMB - Lucy Peach
When she's not educating women (and men) on the power of the period, Lucy Peach is singing catchy tunes like this.
4. SUGAR - Marlene Cummins
Blues singer Marlene Cummins is a treasure. You'll be listening to this on repeat.
5. I WANNA BE YOUR JOY RAMONE - Sleater Kinney
A regular on the shop playlists!
6. WOMAN'S WORLD - Okenyo
This woman is a powerhouse. We love her energetic, inspiring tracks.
7. ELECTRIC LADY - Janelle Monáe feat. Solange
I think it might be impossible to sit still while listening to this. What do you reckon?
8. TO LI - Jojo Abot
Jojo Abot was in town last week putting on the show of a lifetime for Perth Festival. Can we go back in time and have that night all over again please?
9. BARRACUDA - Heart
We always feel super empowered listened to the hard rockin’ Wilson sisters from Heart rip through this classic.
10. GIRLS - Simone & Girlfunkle
Simone & Girlfunkle's new single celebrates inspiring women. Perfect.
