Norway’s Sløtface have released an animated video by Vilde Olianne Rugås Rolfsnes for “Stuff”. The song is songwriter and vocalist Haley Shea’s attempt at a candid breakup song, injected with undeniable Sløtface energy made even more palpable by Shea’s versatile voice. The song is off their highly anticipated sophomore album Sorry for the Late Reply due out January 31, 2020 on Nettwerk/Propeller Recordings.
After road-testing new songs in prisons across Norway as part of a nationwide arts initiative, the new record is full of blistering punk fizz and earworm hooks, articulated by masterfully melancholic lyricism. The band continues to meet acclaim with album tracks such as “S.U.C.C.E.S.S.”, decrying injustices faced by women and immigrants and debuted with Consequence of Sound, along with “Telepathetic” and the environmentally anxious call to action, “Sink or Swim”.
A bombastic, multi-faceted exploration of sonic prowess and thoughtful commentary, the long-awaited new album marks the first time the band have acted as co-producers, as they worked alongside Odd Martin Skålnes (Sigrid, Aurora) in creating their most accomplished body of work to date. The band is heading out on a UK and European run with PUP this November, with US dates to come in 2020.
