Self Esteem critiques the term 'girl crush' with her new single: "Women aren’t a fun new cool thing for straight women to try"

Self Esteem has shared her new single ‘Girl Crush’.

It’s a cut from her upcoming album ‘Compliments Please’, which arrives on 1st March via Fiction Records.

“‘Girl Crush’ is a reaction to the term itself,” she says. “It should just be known as a crush. This isn’t a ground-breaking gender and sexuality statement; it’s just common sense. 

"Women aren’t a fun new cool thing for straight women to try - and in an age of pop songs about ‘kissing girls’ and ‘trying it on for size’, I felt like saying, ‘well you know, that’s not much fun for the person you’re experimenting on?’ 

"It’s a difficult thing to talk about but it’s something I can make a banging pop song about.”

Check out the track below, and catch her on tour throughout March. You can also read more from Rebecca in the March issue of Dork, out now.
