SHILPA RAY Shares “Manic Pixie Dream C*nt,” Video Directed by Amos Poe

Singer-songwriter Shilpa Ray is excited to release a brand new single. “Manic Pixie Dream Cunt” is out today. She teamed with fellow New Yorker, renowned filmmaker Amos Poe to make a video for the track. Shilpa notes, “I wrote this song as an anthem to myself. It’s my ‘Eye of the Tiger,’ much like ‘Rebel Girl’ by Bikini Kill or ‘Edge of Seventeen’ by Stevie Nicks. I wanted to reclaim two derogatory phrases describing women/ femininity and combine them into something powerful. Nobody wants to be a pussy but everyone wishes they were a dream cunt.”

“Manic Pixie Dream Cunt” is the first bit of music Shilpa has released since her 2017 album Door Girl. She is based in Brooklyn and her voice – singular in modern popular music because of its radiant imperfection – takes neither prisoners nor guff as it offers up continuous caustic commentary on the human condition. Hers are observations gleaned from endless nights watching people in their natural habitat.
