After the soaring success of her first single, ​WUTO, Tess’ second offering, ​Fairy Lightsis an unflinching rejection of assumptions about gender and genre​. She has turned-out a striking alt-rock banger about reclaiming power for survivors of gendered violence.

Emboldened in its approach, ​Fairy Lightsbalances Guthrie’s potent voice with an ​unapologetically heavier sound to face internalised victim blaming head-on​. Tess brings a political, poignant and timely track that stands apart from the ethereal and delicate box female singer/songwriters are often placed in.

“This song feels so primal and defiant when we play it live”, Tess says, “So we worked really hard to inject that energy into the production.”

Guthrie states, “I’m so sick of seeing patriarchal attitudes and behaviours perpetuating and permitting violence and abuse across its full spectrum. It has been so normalised that survivors are made to believe that what has happened to them is their fault. It is never their fault. ​Fairy Lightsis about that.”
