‘Slug’ is the first track to be unveiled from the quartet’s explosive new EP – following it’s premiere with Noisey. The video was shot, directed and produced by Andrew Northrop.
Formed in 2013 for an international women’s day gig, Petrol Girls continue to tour regularly around the UK and mainland Europe.
Their music combines manic jagged rhythms with vocals that range from furious screaming to intricate melodies and harmonies. Drawing direct influence from Refused, White Lung, Bikini Kill, Fugazi, RVIVR, Propagandhi, At The Drive-In and War On Woman, Petrol Girls have sculpted a sound and a performance that is not only explosive, but highly detailed andrawkus.
Petrol Girls identify explicitly as a feminist band and draw on personal experiences to challenge and ridicule sexism, as well as exploring wider political themes, such as alienation, mental health and the current anti-austerity movement.
Sometimes desperate and sometimes defiant, ‘Some Thing’ interrogates some big political ideas from an acutely personal perspective. Mental health and relationship issues open up into wider questions about alienation, borders, complicity and control.
It draws together different musical influences in a way that reflects this collision of ideas in the context of a culture that feels increasingly less human.
’Some Thing’ was engineered & mixed by MartaSalogni at Strongroom Studios, London, UK and mastered by Pete Maher in early 2015.
It was produced by Petrol Girls & MartaSalogni.
Tracks 4, 5 and 6 (Extended CD Version), are taken from the Petrol Girls self-titled EP, which was recorded and mixed at Astbury Castle Studios by Jack Fokas.
‘Some Thing’ is available to pre-order on Extended CD, 7inch Vinyl and Digital Download – Released 19th February 2016.
