Ladyhawke (‘Pip’ Brown) returns with the new brilliant single ‘Guilty Love’ featuring BROODS, the first song to come from Ladyhawke’s anticipated new album due for release later this year. A glam-rock inspired pop anthem, ‘Guilty Love’ carries a strong message.
Ladyhawke says: “‘Guilty Love’ is important to Georgia and me for different reasons. Personally, growing up in the Catholic school system, as I reached my teens, I started to feel immense shame and denial about my sexuality. I suffered the constant fear of being judged and alienated by my friends and family. These feelings took a long time to shake off and work through. ‘Guilty Love’ is a way to share our experiences, and hopefully help anyone going through the same thing to know they’re not alone”
Georgia from BROODS said “’Guilty Love’ came from the classic “in-studio heart to heart”. We talked about growing up religiously and how we carried a lot of shame around the idea of what a woman (or person) should be. This song is about that but also about finding our own way back to a sense of spirituality through love. The love that once caused so much guilt, ended up being the most healing and spiritual. END CONVERSION THERAPY EVERYWHERE!”
The video perfectly captures the sentiments of the song, and plays out the scenario of two girls who attend a catholic all-girls school who have feelings for each other, but everything they are taught within that school says that their feelings are wrong or not natural. The end message is that love will always conquer hate.
