Following 2018’s EP Party Bangers, Toronto-based Bad Waitress have now announced their debut album. Ahead of the album’s release this autumn, the band have now shared a fiery new single.
An eerily raging anthem, ‘Strawberry Milkshake‘ blasts into the ears with its scuzzy, pulsating hooks and thrashing beats, as Kali-Ann Butala’s raw, seething vocals soar with a swirling, riotous power, reminiscent of the legendary Brody Dalle. Propelled by a gritty energy and frenzied, empowering drive, it’s a wonderfully sinister – hell-raisingly raucous yet fuzzily catchy – punk-fuelled anthem. Of the track, the band comment:
“‘Strawberry Milkshake’ is saccharine sweet, milky pink terror. On the surface it’s sexy and enticing – but there’s a poisonous sludge bubbling just beneath. It paints the picture of an all-American beauty pageant with buckets of blood as the cherry on top.“
