Hear Peaches’ New Song in Support of Pussy Riot

World-famous rock stars like Madonna and Sting may be getting all the credit, but feminist indie musicians have been supportive of imprisoned Russian activist band/collective Pussy Riot since the very beginning. Kathleen Hanna and her former band mates in both Le Tigre and Bikini Kill have been raising awareness of their plight for months, and now Peaches (who’s also been involved for quite a while) has released a song and video dedicated to the cause. The clip pairs a simple, thudding electronic track that praises the band as “anarchist, feminist, what we need” — and also, awesomely, nods to Icona Pop’s wonderful “I Love It” — with powerful visuals from pro-Pussy Riot demonstrations around the world. Enjoy the badass video below, download the song and sign Peaches’ petition, read the band’s powerful closing statements, find out about actions in your city planned to coincide with Friday’s verdict, and click here to help in any way you can.
