Video: Annie J – Girl Who Cried Wolf

Girl Who Cried Wolf is the new live performance video from New Zealand-based singer songwriter Annie J.

By Graeme Smith

It’s a delicately intimate performance of a pop ballad that is lyrically steeped in metaphor. Accompanied by acoustic guitar, Annie takes on the culture of violence against women through powerful vocals and clever wordplay. It’s a strong statement delivered by someone who has clearly been on the receiving end of harassment and has had enough of it.

Still early in her career, Annie has already been making a name for herself in her native New Zealand charts. It feels like the time for the rest of the world to discover her too. Check out the live performance of Girl Who Cried Wolf below.
