Track Of The Day: Healthy Junkies – ‘Some Kind of Girl’

**Trigger Warning: Discussion of sexual harassment in the workplace**

A riotous exploration of the multiple microaggressions that women endure on a daily basis while trying to stay focused in the workplace; Healthy Junkies have shared their latest single, ‘Some Kind Of Girl’. Lifted from the band’s fourth album, Delirious Dream, the track is informed by personal experience.

“I can hear the scream inside your eyes” seethes Healthy Junkies vocalist Nina Courson over crashing percussion and heavy riffs. ‘Some Kind Of Girl’ is based on Courson’s own experience of sexual harassment which she endured when she moved from France to London as a young woman. “There is very much a call for change in today’s society” she explains. “Truth, justice and non-acceptance of inappropriate behaviour are very much at the fore-front of this.”

The London-based band have shared an accompanying video for the track (directed by John Clay) that highlights the pervasive nature of sexual harassment, and how the effects last long after women leave the office. Watch the visuals below and follow Healthy Junkies on Facebook & Spotify for more updates.
