Lucy Rose has claimed that female artists get compared to one another just because they're female – in a way that never happens to their male peers.

Speaking on BBC Radio 6 Music earlier today (August 12), Rose recalled a recent interview in which she was told that it's currently easier for a female artist to become successful than a male artist.

"I was like, 'That's so not true in any way'," Rose said. "When I was looking for a label and had offers, there was one that would put an offer in and then they'd sign another girl and be like 'We'll have to sign you on a different one of our labels [now]'... And they sign, like, a hundred acts or something."

Rose proceeded to add: "People think we're all the same – like all girls sound the same. Boys would never be compared like girls are compared. I'll be compared to just any female singer who's current now, irrelevant to what their music is or my music is, just because we're female. And that would never happen with guys or bands. It's really frustrating."

Lucy Rose will play a gig at Portsmouth's Wedgewood Rooms on August 22 ahead of her sets at Reading and Leeds festivals on August 24 and 25. She'll then embark on a North American tour through September and October.
