Norway’s Sløtface, have unveiled another searing slice of their full-length debut with new single ‘Nancy Drew‘, one of the band’s most hard-hitting releases to date. The band have also released the track’s accompanying visuals, created by Norwegian illustrator / animator jellyvamps (Ida Neverdahl).

The song is about this super hero I tried to create that’s based on the fictional character – Nancy Drew. The lyrics are an attempt at making a song that has a more positive spin on an album that is mostly about things I’m nervous about, or things that are worrying in general. For this song I wanted to create a kind of super hero saviour, so I drew inspiration from Nancy Drew and tried to imagine a bad-ass super hero who crushes the music industry’s boys’ club and the patriarchy with one punch.

Recent single ‘Magazine‘ now also has an official music video – a parody a YouTube makeup tutorial that comically drawing attention to our culture’s obsession with appearance and unrealistic beauty standards.

Every opportunity they get, the four piece bring fearlessness and defiance to the table. Lead by vocalist Haley Shea with guitarist Tor-Arne Vikingstad, bassist Lasse Lokøy and Halvard Skeie Wiencke on drums, with every move they make, they look to spin conventions on their head.

The band is bringing this passionate virtuosity and their energetic live show to Australia with debut shows at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Wednesday 6th September and Howler in Melbourne on Thursday 7th September.

Their debut album ‘Try Not To Freak Out‘ will be released on Friday 15th September via Propeller Recordings.
