Debut album Try Not To Freak Out is out September 15th via Propellor Records.
A feminist call to arms, the latest track from Norway’s Sløtface is an unrelenting and unashamed blast of aggressive pop punk. Raw and gritty but with an undeniably hooky edge, the track is pretty much sick of boys with acoustic guitars and the patriarchal nature of the music industry in general.
This would count for naught if the track wasn’t such a battering and bruising piece of righteous fury. Plus it make an allusion to The Runaways, which is always good in our book. Can you spot it?
“The song is about this super hero I tried to create that’s based on Nancy Drew”, Haley explains. “The lyrics are an attempt at making a song that has a more positive spin on an album that is mostly about things I’m nervous about, or things that are worrying in general. For this song I wanted to create a kind of super hero saviour, so I drew inspiration from Nancy Drew and tried to imagine a bad-ass super hero who crushes the music industry’s boys’ club and the patriarchy with one punch.”
