Track Of The Day: Basic Bitches – ‘You Know I’m Right’

If you’re constantly battling Zoom-induced fatigue, or if your opinions are still being ignored in online work meetings, Basic Bitches are here to set the record straight. Their latest single ‘You Know I’m Right’ is a rallying cry against unfair work-place politics, and a middle finger to the mediocre men who are one step ahead of you on the career ladder – even when you’re all working from home!

The Brooklyn-based duo combine thrashing beats, riotous riffs and a chant-worthy chorus to communicate their frustrations. The track is taken from their 2019 EP, Relatable Content (released via Hell Hath No Fury Records), and is accompanied by a familiar looking set of visuals. Directed by Erin Waters and edited by Erin & Johnathan DeMuth, the video shows how a conference call “dissolve into chaos as a condescending middle manager faces a revolt from his bored and disgruntled workforce”.

Check out the video for ‘You Know I’m Right’ below and follow Basic Bitches on Facebook and Spotify for more updates.

Track Of The Day: Basic Bitches – ‘How Come None Of You Ever Want To Hang Anymore?’

Formed back in 2014 in New York City by Naomi Scott (Naomi Hates Humans) working with different drummers before finding an ideal collaborator in Nick D’Amore (Overlake), Basic Bitches self-released their debut album last year, and have now shared their brand new single, ahead of an upcoming UK tour.

Accompanied by a spooky video, ‘How Come None Of You Ever Want To Hang Anymore?’ races with raucous riffs and thrashing beats as Scott’s raw, gritty vocals rage. With shades of the likes of The Distillers, it’s an immense blast of sound that hits your ears with a seething urgency. And, at just 54 seconds long, it’s a perfect, ferocious slice of energy-fuelled punk that leaves you desperate for more.
