Raye Zaragoza delivers yet another inspirational track with her feminist anthem “Fight Like a Girl”. The Los Angeles based singer/songwriter is known for her beautifully captivating and thought-provoking lyrics which shine a light on important issues. Her latest release emphasizes her ambition to bring awareness to topics close to her heart and “Fight Like a Girl” demands attention.
Zaragoza’s distinct, heavenly vocals sing about the sheer efforts women have been through to get to where we are today and how the fight is truly never over. With a bright horn section, reminiscent of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, the empowering and uplifting track is the ultimate toe-tap inducing anthem. Warm guitar tones emit an impassioned and heartfelt message, while jangly percussion embellishes the track with splashes of jubilation.
Produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, Camera Obscura), Zaragoza is using her voice and platform to inspire and motivate. Zaragoza shares, “It’s about how ‘fighting like a girl’ means something different to every female identifying person out there. It is about the resilience of women of color, and all women. It is time for feminism to include all women – Indigenous, Immigrant, Trans, and all those marginalized for their identities. This is the time for intersectional feminism and the youth will lead the way!”
The activist musician has built an impressive resume, playing to sold-out stadiums and festivals across the nation and beyond, receiving notoriety from critics and fans alike. The award-winning Zaragoza (pronounced ray zay-rah-GO-zah) is evidently an artist on the rise. Whether it’s her poignant songwriting, soulful vocals or utterly infectious songs, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
