As some gear up to celebrate the greatest moment in history, we are going for a much fantastical lane in the form of Dirty Mae’s new music video “Big Red,” a wild retelling of the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood.
About the song and video, Cassie Fireman comments:
After watching Amanda Palmer’s music video “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now,” I said to myself, “I want to do that! I want to make art with women and I need to say something.” I’d been experiencing so much anger around the #metoo movement and women’s voices not being heard so I decided to use my own voice, story, and music to help me work through it. Our new single “Big Red” is the version of Little Red Riding Hood all grown up. She isn’t lost in the woods and is busy casting spells on villains with her pack of witches. I loved re-imagining this character as a sexy, strong woman who enjoys having all the power. On the day of the shoot, the “Big Red” in all of us came out play as we snuck into graveyards, turned men into sheep and howled like wolves under the sky.
