Gecko (UK) Releases New Video For ‘Rapunzel’

British singer-storyteller Gecko has made a new videoclip for his new single ‘Rapunzel’, a feminist take on the ancient fairytale of Rapunzel. Gecko has toured extensively all throughout Europe and England including festivals such as Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Pinkpop, sold out shows in London and more.

As Gecko said himself: “After one day contemplating the fairytale Rapunzel I felt like writing my own version. In my firmly feminist re-telling Rapunzel schools the prince on why you can’t just expect to marry someone if you help them out. She also explains that she wants true freedom not to be kept ‘safe’ in his castle. This is one of my favourite songs to play live, I’ve had the pleasure to play it all over Europe but my highlight has to be playing it to primary school kids!”
