I’d like to think you can expect some big sing along songs with an upbeat and energetic melodic punk style. There are some strong and meaningful messages in the songs that everyone can relate to…or at least we hope or would like to think.
We’ve only been a band just over a year and 2018 was absolutely crazy busy which we are so thankful and happy about. From releasing the first single, being played on BBC Radio five times, Mike James Radio Show, being featured in magazines and being on the road loads. We did around 100 shows last year including festivals and we’ve recorded the EP and Debut album… we did more than we ever expected and we’re so so humbled and thankful.
Punk rock period is going to be a important show with a great line up at a great venue. We’re playing alongside the awesome and lovely Louise Distras again as well as Kate Gough. It’s for International Woman’s Day and is more important than ever right now to raise awareness of topics such as period poverty.
We were always aware there was a problem we all have friends, mothers and relatives who this affects but the degree it’s now reached is just appalling. I actually read an article the other day about how many young women are missing school because they cannot afford the prices of sanitary products. There were even cases of having to wrap a sock around there underwear until they got home because they can’t afford these essentials. Something has to be done. Food bank dependency increased massively last year now if people can’t afford food how can they afford how can you be expected to afford menstrual products at these prices??
That’s a very good question actually. The reason I started growing my hair out which was before the band had even started was in 2016. My Mum got diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer. She was going (and Did) have to go through 2 lots of intense chemotherapy one in October 2016 then again in March 2017. She was told she would lose her hair and it may never grow back (which didn’t happen from the first hospital treatment, she has amazing thick hair) but did during the 2nd hospital treatment. So I was at a loss as anyone who’s been in that situation will tell you. You feel totally useless so i figured my hair is pretty similar to hers so I just started growing it. Was kinda the only thing i could do apart from be there for her. So I grew it out with the intention to cut it all off to send it off and have a wig made for her. L
So now I’ve bummed everyone out that’s the story of my hair haha
