This is the debut single from The Sisters of Invention – the world’s first girl band with intellectual disabilities. It’s a catchy alt-pop tune with a powerful message. Part parody part rock ‘n’ roll edge, the video subverts the idea of the ‘perfect princess’. It’s unexpected and surreal, and it challenges stereotypes whilst putting disability voices and faces firmly in the pop culture landscape.
