Athens based alternative artist Sarah P. has released the music video for her single “Maenads“. It quickly gained traction, racking up over ten thousand views on Youtube in the first 24 hours of its upload. Like many of Sarah P.’s songs and videos, “Maenads” doesn’t shy away from mental health issues.
“For those who don’t know, I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety for a long time. The whole point of the video is to show that it’s possible to control one’s mental health, rather than living a life controlled by mental illness.” – Sarah P.
Uploaded the week of International Women’s Day, “Maenads” has a strong feminist message as well. The title refers to the ancient Greek female followers of Dionysus. The Maenads were known for their strength and ability to stick together to advocate for what was right.
