Xiu Xiu – Petite (2017)

“There is a notorious website called backpage.com that until recently was a hub for trafficking in underage sex workers. A lot of this trafficking takes place in the next neighborhood over from where I live. The screen shots are all from ads on that were on backpage for children being used for sex work. The song ‘Petite’ is about these girls. At the end of the song “faith torn apart” on FORGET there is a specific line devoted to each of the girls in the photos used in this video.” – Jamie Stewart.

“Petite” is taken from the album, FORGET, out now.
