Take Me Dancing
Oh man, this new Sløtface song is so good. From the frenetic bass to the shredding guitars and Haley Shea’s always on-point, simultaneously vulnerable and strong voice and the wicked drum solo at the end, this is a must-listen new track.
Here’s what Sløtface had to say about the new track:
Some people were skeptical of us releasing a song about dancing and getting drunk because they felt like it made us ‘less believable feminists’, but that is kind of the whole point of this song. The feminism we have faith in is all about individualism and being free to be yourself regardless of gender. Yes, we believe in equal rights for all genders, but we also like partying and drinking and sometimes we make mistakes, and that’s OK
The song was originally written as a response to the male voice in Big Star’s “Thirteen”. I was trying to write the girl’s answer to “won’t you let me walk you home from school?” because I love that song, but think it portrays a very chaste and old school version of femininity. All we are trying to say is that it’s OK to let loose and have fun from time to time.
