SONG OF THE DAY: 'Ladies Don't Play Guitar' by Tennis
    • FRIDAY, AUGUST 05, 2016

    Tennis front woman, Alaina Moore, recently shared a new song on Facebook along with a message, "'Ladies don't play guitar' was the first line I wrote after finishing Ritual In Repeat. It reflects all the times I was told to 'get out from behind the keyboard and be a front person' -- as though my instrument was a prop rather than sonically integral -- to smile more, to make eye contact with my bandmates during a show, to look more like I'm 'having a good time,' or the many instances in which my writing credits were mistakenly attributed to my husband. This is something I've wanted to express for a long time but didn't know how."

    This song stands against something that, unfortunately, performers go through every day -- the guys getting the credit and the girls being told to just stand there and look pretty. Of course, this isn't always the case, we're not saying every female musician is automatically a victim, but it's a problem that most experience at least once during their career. Moore pointed this out beautifully, and shared a new song with grace and elegance.
