Stateside hardcore phenomenon Scowl have shared red-hot single ‘Psychic Dance Routine’.
The band’s much-anticipated new EP lands on April 7th, and each single seems to highlight a different aspect of their music. Blending hardcore fury with faint traces of pop, Scowl definitely have the capability of crossing over.
Need more evidence? ‘Psychic Dance Routine’ grabs you by the throat from the first note… but in a nice way. An urgent, addictive piece of alt-leaning pop, it puts you in mind of Hole at their mainstream-taunting best.
The video for ‘Psychic Dance Routine’ was directed by guitarist Malachi Greene and choreographed by Bridget Smith. Singer Kat Moss comments…
My perspective of being consumed as the version of myself that is “performing” has shifted dramatically, while simultaneously grappling the experience of being a feminine artist in a world that doesn’t always take you seriously.
I made an effort to change perspectives back and forth lyrically because I felt that would have the most impact with the message I was trying convey. ‘She’ll never be your animal, she’s got her own personal hell.” In its simplest form I’m explaining that nobody can corner me into their perception of who I am and that I’ve got my own shit to deal with. By using ‘She’ I’m making it clear that I’m also speaking about a feminine experience. ‘Can’t handle your control, think of the love I’d give’ is me begging the listener to relinquish the grip they have on me and questioning if they’ll allow me to be the earnest and vulnerable person I truly am.
Tune in now.
