On International Women’s Day, Ontario-based country artist Amanda Kind released her latest single “Rebel Spirit”.
The track starts off strong which definitely sets the tone for the entire song and helps depict what the title of the track means!
“Rebel Spirit” was created to be a girl-power anthem about being brave, bold and letting your wild heart take the lead. Kind wanted the women listening to this song to be true to themselves and to use their voices.
“My mom raised me to be brave. Growing up, I was headstrong and still am. Standing up for what’s right, defying society’s expectations, and listening to my gut have always been a big part of who I am. But, it’s hard to break the mold and stay true to yourself when the pressure’s on. I love the Fearless Girl statue in New York – I have a huge canvas print of her in my music studio to remind me to be brave everyday,” Amanda said.
The Music Video For “Rebel Spirit”
The music video for this “Rebel Spirit” is the most perfect visualizer for this song. It features several young girls and women lip-synching and dancing to the track. This truly showed the power of the track and displayed how Kind envisioned the song to empower women all over the world.
You can listen to this song, dance to it and feel empowered on your favourite streaming platform now!
