I love to get the inside scoop on new releases by Black Women I n Rock. This week State of SATE hit me up with a sneak peek, or rather listen, of her new single, “Dirty Little Lie.” It’s hard and funky, with a sensuous groove. YASSSS! So of course, I couldn’t let her get away without dropping’ 5LBS. Of Rock.’ Here i’tis!
SHEILA: How would you describe your brand of rock?
SATE: Inspired by the influx of police brutality, MAGAssholes and race-related hate crimes in the world and the conversations I was having, that questioned why the pain and threats to the humanity of brown bodies are fetishized and rationalized. Then, reframed as a fucked up power struggle gas lighting boundary disrespecting relationship. It’s also inspired by The Devil card in the tarot. This song personally affects me as a woman of colour and allowed me to use the tarot as a guide, making this song special to me.
