The Airborne Toxic Event and Marc Sallis of The Duke Spirit have today unleashed their new single titled "Prudence", which will be released this Friday (January 15th) along with a cover of Supergrass' "Alright" as the single's B-side.
Speaking on the track, Anna explains:
"This song is about a real person named Prudence whom I love dearly and who always seems to be running both towards and away from the finer things in life at the same time. When I wrote it, I was just starting to figure out my voice by aping different male vocalists whom I loved. And for this song, I was singing along to David Bowie every day, listening to his voice and trying to channel the smallest scrap of his spirit. Turns out he is, was, and always will be a thousand percent inimitable. At least by me."

"Prudence" prefaces the #GIRLSCHOOL festival. The festival, taking place on Friday, January 29th - Sunday, January 31st at Los Angeles' Bootleg Theater, is an inclusive event, giving the opportunity for fans of all gender identities to be a part of a contemporary, female, musical movement. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls LA, a non-profit empowering and nurturing young girls through music education.
"After all the talk about the reigning perceptions of women in the music industry, and after my 9 years of being the lone female performer at the alternative radio festivals much of the time, I felt called to do something purely positive for other women and with other women. Getting to fashion this little celebratory nest for a community of brilliant, driven, and talented people to connect and 'do' with one another has been the most meaningful and satisfying project I've taken on in a really long time," Bulbrook says of #GIRLSCHOOL.
"There are a lot of formidable female minds out there doing incredible things; we just want to highlight and give weight to the excellence we already see around us. There is a power and a magic in getting everyone together. We hope to continue growing our community and its impact for a long time to come, and I should add that people of all gender identities are a warmly welcomed part of our whole thing! As we like to say, a rising tide raises all boats."
The event will host performances by The Bulls along with Alina Bea, Conway, Gothic Tropic, Kat Corbett (DJ set), Kate Nash (DJ set), Kera and the Lesbians, Kim & The Created, Lael Neale, Maria Taylor, Miya Folick, Nightjacket, Phoebe Bridgers, Riothorse Royale, Steady Holiday and White Sea.
