New Zealand born singer songwriter Gin Wigmore has released her political new single HBIC. The track arrives on the eve of New Zealand’s general election and aims to highlight and celebrate people in power who are doing great things for the world.
The track follows her previous singles Feels Like Me and Hangover Halo and is released via 333 Wreckords Crew, a collective founded by Wigmore’s husband Jason Aalan Butler, frontman of the band Fever 333.
Speaking about the track, Gin Wigmore explained, “Head Bitch In Charge – or HBIC if you’re short on time – to me feels like it should be a career choice highlighted on career day, don’t ya think? It takes a lot to willingly take the reins and steer things like a boss. It takes a lot to be a leader, and even more to be good at it. Holding compassion, consideration and empathy at the forefront of all decision making for the beings and environment you are responsible for. Withstanding public pressure and maintaining a clear focus on the greater good.
“Too many times, throughout the history of humanity, we have offered platforms to dangerously insensitive people. People in positions of power committing crimes against humanity, animals and the beautiful world we live in. I feel it is our duty to combat the bad with the good. To see through the bullshit and do away with outdated ideas and tired methods. So, with this song, I hope to offer a soundtrack to the celebration of the HBIC that exists in all of us and commend those currently utilizing their platform for good. And with that, I’d personally like to dedicate this song to New Zealand’s own HBIC – Jacinda Ardern – for doing just that.”
