There’s a urgency for bands to speak out about issues that really matter and start a debate to clarify what’s really in stake. Sløtface – previously known as Slutface – emerge from that will to go against the shitty things in life that need to be exposed, such as equality, our environment and other social issues.
The four-piece combine furious punk along with pop sensibilities, making their songs catchy yet raw. Their overwhelming awareness turn into fearless singles like “Sponge State”. “It’s our term for the feeling that something needs to change,” explains vocalist Haley Shea. “The song is a reaction to the apathy and lack of action that is symptomatic of our generation.” This song is taken from Sløtface’s debut EP, Sponge State, out now via Propeller Recordings.
