Stella Donnelly has been making a name for herself in Australia and now she’s being introduced to the US of A. Here’s a small taste of what to expect before she hits the States for SXSW. This tune is especially timely. I’ll let Stella explain.

As she explained to NPR Music, “’Boys Will Be Boys’ was written in late 2016 and is an attempt at making sense of society’s tendency to blame the victims of sexual assault and rape and make excuses for the perpetrators. Writing this also helped me work through things that had happened to not only my friends but to me as well, it helped me relieve a lot of the shame that victims are so often forced to feel in silence. I hope that this song along with the video will open up difficult yet important conversations between family members, friends, government bodies, organizations and most importantly, boys and men.”
