A band after our own hearts, having shouted back against the injustice of harassment and toxic masculinity in the music industry on last year’s ‘Complex’, Slowcoaches continue their biting social commentary with new single ‘Found Down’.
Racing with a seething energy, ‘Found Down’ hits your ears with its scuzzy riffs and the raw, angst-driven vocals of Heather Perkins. Oozing an immense, punk-fuelled power, it’s a perfect blast of raging honesty that we need now more than ever.
Of the track, Perkins explains:
“It’s about how the ‘struggle’ of the artist is glamorised by mainstream labels via the media in order to sell records… And it’s about how mundane and frustrating the day-to-day reality of that struggle can actually be, whether that’s mental, financial or something else.”
‘Found Down’ will be released as a 7″, backed by Misfits’ cover ‘Skulls’ on the B-side. Catch Slowcoaches live at the following dates:
27th May – UK @ Raw Power Festival, London
5th June – Green Door Store, Brighton
21st June – Chunk, Leeds
23rd June – Delicious Clam, Sheffied
