PREMIERE: Sløtface Contemplate Resolutions on “New Year, New Me”
The pop-punk Norwegians share the latest single from their second LP, Sorry for the Late Reply.
New year, new Sløtface album—the political Norwegian punks are slated to dish out their second LP, Sorry for the Late Reply, at the end of January, which touches on everything from climate change to frontwoman Haley Shea’s expatriatism from her native U.S.
Today, the four-piece is sharing the fifth single from the album, an exhausted acknowledgement of the need for meaningless New Year’s resolutions. “Keep hoarding books I’ll never read, keep making plans I’ll never keep,” sighs Shea in a matter-of-fact tone recalling Sadie Dupuis, over a grungy take on pop-punk that would sound right at home on a Speedy Ortiz record.
“This one is about all the promises we keep to ourselves, and all the good advice we give but never take,” she shares of the track. “I’m a master of thinking I can always be better, work harder, sleep less, do more, but maybe that’s not always possible. It’s about working on taking care of yourself and taking advice you would give to someone else.”
Sorry for the Late Reply is out January 31 via Propeller Recordings. You can pre-order it here.
