Frontwoman Heather Perkins had the following to say about the album
“a song about feeling like you’re at a dead end. It’s about wanting to change your life but procrastinating because it’s easier to just repeat the same patterns over and over. It’s about being skint, and depressed and having no motivation. Being stuck at a desk or behind a bar and feeling like there must be more out there. It’s about getting out of work and going to get smashed and waking up and dragging yourself back in to it and not giving anything or taking anything and just existing in an endless vacuum that you can’t step out of. This video is about the fact that I love baths and I hate going to work, But sitting in a cold bath for 6 hours to shoot this has made me hate baths too so now I hate baths and I hate work.”
14/05 So Not Pink Fest, Southampton, UK
21/07 Outside Rodeo Festival, Coburg, Germany
26-27/08 234 Festival, Brighton, UK
Adding something new in the indie punk region is Slowcoaches and their latest song ‘54‘. Whilst the lyrics focus on a party house up in Leeds, the track itself is full of strong positive guitar chords and a certain pop vibe in its wake. You can check out the track below to see for yourself!
