If you’re yet to discover Norway’s Sløtface, then what the fuck have you been doing these past couple of months? Back in May they released their debut EP Sponge State; four tracks of sociopolitical pop-punk snarl. It rocked.

However, fast forward a couple of months and the band, who have already faced one evolution this year; reluctantly changing their name from Slutface to Sløtface, have changed things up again. Showcasing a more mature sound, their latest single ‘Bright Lights’ sees the four piece draw on their 90’s rock influences this time around – utilising a very Pixies esque bass line.

Taken from upcoming new EP Empire Records (November 18 via Propeller Recordings), the track follows on from previous feel-good-let’s-get-drunk-and-dance number ‘Take Me Dancing’ released in July. Check out ‘Bright Lights’, below.


On the latest single, vocalist Haley Shea says; “Bright Lights is about escaping from things that are going on in your own head and in society in general by distracting yourself, especially from the minor and major personal issues we all have. It’s about a desire for escape, and a break from dealing with things that might seem too hard”.

Empire Records EP is out on November 18th via Propeller Recordings.
