BoxCat – Something

I posted about Boxcat’s debut single this time last year so it’s good to return to this Cardiff based band and their brand of punk rock a year later via their new EP Something. The aforementioned single was riot grrrl inspired but on the opening tracks here the band seem to have migrated over to a full on pop-punk sound.

Blussh – Shut Up Becky!

The debut EP from Brisbane’s Blussh is a fast-paced, grunge and riot grrrl influenced EP.

All Girls Arson Club – Untitled

Untitled is taken from the forthcoming Dark Fruits EP that will be released in April via Delicious Clam Records. It’s a mixture of punk, pop and riot grrrl resulting in a raw sounding but powerful song. Excellent drums and shouty vocals too. If this is “just” the opening track the rest of the EP must be something else! The Dark Fruits EP will be available on 7″ vinyl and digital formats. You can pre-order from the label.

Tight Knit – Too Hot

Originally released digitally in 2017 Too Hot, and flip side Want You, by Melbourne’s Tight Knit now get the vinyl treatment they deserve courtesy of Glasgow’s Not Unloved Records. Too Hot is a garage/indiepop hybrid with more than a few nods in the direction of riot grrrl whilst I Want You has a catchy chorus that you could die for. Order the 7″ here. The original digital versions are still available on a pay what you want basis from the band. Facebook Continue reading Tight Knit – Too Hot
