Norway’s Sløtface kick off their quick run of Australian dates tonight in Brisbane as part of Bigsound.
Wednesday you’ll find them at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory and Howler in Melbourne on Thursday.
The band recently shared a music video for their new single ‘Pitted‘ — a ferocious, spirited introvert’s anthem about not wanting to go out, but having the greatest night when you do.
‘Pitted‘ is the new single from their upcoming debut album ‘Try Not To Freak Out‘ due September 15th via Propeller Recordings / Caroline Australia.
“Pitted is our own little pep talk for getting out of the house when you would really prefer to stay in and chill on the couch. No, not every night out is killer, but sometimes those nights make the best stories and that song is full of good stories from bad nights out. Pitted is also the first song we’ve ever done with horns, so we’re SUPER STOKED to release it. The trumpet is played by Norwegian jazz musician Simen Kiil Halvorsen.“
The new track follows their singles ‘Nancy Drew‘ and ‘Magazine‘.
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.
