Back in April, Suicide Squeeze Records unveiled plans for an ongoing digital singles series called Pinks & Purples which so far has featured exciting tracks by up-and-coming artists including The Shivas, Upchuck, cumgirl8, and, most recently, Holy Wave. The latest of these tracks arrives today courtesy of Mexican punks Margaritas Podridas, who are delivering a heated middle finger to anti-abortion laws with the grunge-infused 95-second punk jam “No Quiero ser Madre.”
“It is a song about unwanted pregnancy, the thought of having an embryo developing inside you against your will,” the band shares of the confrontational single. “It is about being scared, and the feeling you’d get when you imagine it inside you, not being able to stop its growth right away, not knowing what to do, screaming, hoping it is a bad dream.”
Check out the track below, and catch the band later this month if you’re at This Ain’t No Picnic (you can also find more upcoming West Coast dates here).
