Dummy interview

Great new interview with Dummy. Here's an excerpt:

Was there a specific reason why you chose the miniskirt? What was it about that piece of clothing that spoke to you?

Raphaelle Standell-Preston: "I guess, culturally, the miniskirt is so prominent. Within pornography or with Sailor Moon even, it’s a symbol of sexuality. In court cases when women are sexually assaulted, a lot of the time they’ll be asked, 'What were you wearing?', almost as if they were bringing it on themselves by what they were wearing. That’s what I was drawing on. It’s funny, talking about this I get so nervous. It’s still something that I’m learning to talk about, because it feels like the lyrics are so much bigger than me.
