Irish indie-rock band Susie Blue have just released a feel-good video to accompany their brand new single ‘Be A Lady’. It features a group of young and carefree children enjoying their time together, mimicking and dressing up the band.
As with their previous single ‘People Like Us’ it celebrates queer issues and challenges homophobia and gender stereotypes.
Lead singer and founder of the band Susan Donaghy tells Dork Magazine, “I love the innocence kids have and that most of the time they just be who they are without thinking about it. I want us to take some lessons from them and that’s what I wanted to show with this video”.
Within the beaming indie rock and pop sound there is a strong message of acceptance and equality. Susan’s expressive lyrics stand against judgement and reach out to anyone who has ever felt rejected by society and inspires them to be proud of who they are.
The band’s spirit imbues their live performance and they recently supported the likes of The Strypes and Glen Hansard as well as appearing at festivals including Whelan’s One To Watch Festival, Output Festival, Swell Festival and Maritime Festival.
Last month the band performed in England for the very first time, playing a St. Patrick’s Day special at Camden’s Dublin Castle, with a date at Clapham’s Bread And Roses the following night.
Working hard as an independent band and putting their heart and soul into everything they do, Susie Blue are reflective of a young generation of musical activists in a big world full of adversity.
