New Heavy Sounds

Released: 16.02.24






London-based Queercore feminist punks Shooting Daggers release some fiery rage-along ditties in a debut long-form outing which follows on from kick ass singles that have garnered much respect and support slots to the likes of Amyl & The Sniffers. Whilst I wouldn’t say it’s an out and out hardcore noise event it has some rollicking moments indeed, Wipeout undeniably wipes you out with some solid fury starkly contrasted by the delicately disturbing A Guilty Conscience Needs An Accuser.

The album has a distinctly conscious punk soul to it, as the band states it’s about “unity, sorority, self-love, taking back power, queer love and skateboarding”. Butts are gonna be kicked, give it some heft with this worthy soundtrack.
