This track is about the courage of people, but particularly women, in the face of adversity. It is inspired the true story of Kamila Sidiqi, oppressed by the Taliban regime and thriving against all odds. Presently, we are in a cross-cultural creative collaboration to design visuals to accompany our sonic response to a theme that affects all of us. A unique and humbling creative project between New Zealand and Afghanistan.

Money from ALL purchases of this track will go directly to the making of the music video in Afghanistan.


Your mountains
your blockades
your terror
and your hate
ironically create
a potent heroine.

You shamelessly
blast your way
again and again
and imitate
a blind
and simple mind

What a Beautiful Beast
underneath her feet
