Sister duo Rachel and Bec Olsson–Innocent Eve–have released Mixed Bag, a song that laments prejudices around societal differences and the overarching need for love and acceptance. As the lyric “Just love, embrace our differences” suggests, now more than ever, is a time to come together.
The song makes comments on the idea of youthful innocence and how, as we age, our judgements become more rigid and prejudices around size, religion, ethnicity or gender can cloud the overarching need for love and acceptance.
Rachel says that the message the sisters try to live by and pass on to their fans is “Be happy, love, be kind to one another. Take risks and live a life you will be happy with. It may not always be pretty, but it’s about the relationships you have and pursuing your dreams and passions.”
