Obey The Queen
It goes without question that heads will be turned by Scarlet’s charismatic skull-faced persona. For Scarlet, every day is Halloween. Visually, she's what you would picture apocalyptic Harley Quinn to look like. If that were not enough of a statement, vocally she is what you could imagine Lady Gaga sounding like if she embarked upon the metal route. Scarlet is powerful, fiery, and psychotically charming. There is a certain appeal to the mystique behind Scarlet, allowing you to not have any other associations but simply take the dish you are being served.
"I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t experienced it," explains Scarlet, when asked about female oppression in the workplace. " If it happens to you, no matter if you're a women or a man, if you feel oppressed in your workplace something is seriously off and you should talk to someone about it."
With Trump seemingly still refusing to leave office, people across the globe are celebrating a big win for a progressive presidency, "with Trump losing the election I think that America has a better chance moving towards equality," Scarlet says. However, one of the biggest problems at the moment are social media platforms doing very little to tackle fake news, and many seemingly misunderstanding opinion, for fact. "Such a big part of our lives is social media. Platforms where people are able to speak their minds without filters," Scarlet explains. "Therefore, people are mistaking opinions for facts and there lies the problem. Also some people are just stupid and some are poorly educated."
“We want people to see and experience that we have broken free from socially conditioned rules and norms. The vast majority of people in the western world live in a predetermined form that suits very few.” Scarlet said in an interview with Sevendays.
‘Obey The Queen’ is fresh, addictive, and an album Scarlet makes her own. The album is almost theatrical at times. The lyrics are edgy, angsty, and emotional, with feminist themes certainly coming through during its course. Musically, the debut album is also diverse. Naturally with an eccentric and dramatic persona, there is the chance for backlash. “Some people hate it as always but if you have a controversial “look” and sound you need to be prepared for both love and hate. I choose to focus on the love” Scarlet said in an interview with Femmetal.
Scarlet’s album has been long awaited, and what a time to make her fiery debut. The artist is shrouded in mystery, but her messages are not. Stemming from the skull-faced queen’s mansion, ‘Obey The Queen’ is sure to make an impact.
