Music Video for The Sisters of Invention (2014)

721A7349 copy

‘This isn’t Disneyland’ is the debut single from The Sisters of Invention, the world’s first girl band with intellectual disabilities. It’s a catchy alt-pop tune with a powerful message. With over 50,000 views on Youtube, the video is part parody part rock n’ roll edge, and successfully subverts the idea of the ‘perfect princess’. It’s unexpected and surreal and it challenges stereotypes whilst putting disability voices and faces firmly in the pop culture landscape.
