LA-based indie pop duo Only Bricks is back with their latest offering – an empowering and inspiring message on the fight for women’s equality wrapped up in their signature upbeat, playful, and clever pop style. Their latest single and accompanying visuals for “Big Girl Shoes” is a bold anthem regarding issues that women face at the workplace and is based upon the “double bind of needing to look feminine but not sexy, an added weight women carry at work on top of their normal job responsibilities,” says Anne, lead vocalist and songwriter. The duo, composed of husband and guitarist Joseph Lewczak and wife and singer/songwriter Anne Digiovanni also happen to be practicing attorneys. The song was written after Anne had an experience with a male colleague making a comment about her wearing her “big girl shoes” to the office.
Radiating a 90’s throwback vibe with attitude, “Big Girl Shoes” is a catchy pop anthem featuring impassioned lyrics, soaring vocals, and polished pop production infused with an element of punk inspiration that give the tune an interesting and unexpected twist.
The accompanying visuals are lighthearted and vibrant with color. Joseph plays multiple characters in the story, adding fun and humor to soften the song’s more serious underlying message. The video also features a collection of the most fascinating shoes, perfectly fit for any leading lady.
Only Bricks has received praise for their feminist music since their 2019 single, “Alright!” and they are best known for their creative fusion of rock, pop and dance sounds.
