Jaguar Jonze releases powerful new EP 'victim impact statement'



Yesterday, 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' artist Jaguar Jonze released her new EP 'victim impact statement'.


The raw and powerful three-track EP was accompanied by a short film under the same name.





She said she created the EP as a source of empowerment.


"The victim impact statement EP + film was written as a gift to myself. To return my voice and own my body - this is my protest. To give myself permission to feel and grieve, rage and cry. To remind myself why I came into art and music in the first place. To repair; move forward. To take back my potential and take up the space I deserve in this world. To rely on myself for justice," she said in a statement.


Jaguar Jonze was a fierce advocate against sexual abuse, particularly within the industry, but in her full statement says this did take a personal toll.


"When I made the choice to go public with the incident, it came at an insurmountable cost... For the last five years, I have relived the violation of my body again and again in every room, on every stage, across newspapers, screens, websites and whispers until I was no longer one of you," she explains.
