Scowl Show Off Their “Psychic Dance Routine” with Their Latest Single and Video


Hardcore outfit and Sonic demolishers Scowl are streaming the title track to their upcoming EP Psychic Dance Routine, coming out on April 7.

Vocalist Kat Moss said the new track is an introspective look at what it means to be a female performer “in a world that doesn’t take you seriously.”

“My perspective of being consumed as the version of myself that is ‘performing’ has shifted dramatically, while simultaneously grappling the experience of being a feminine artist in a world that doesn’t always take you seriously.

“I made an effort to change perspectives back and forth lyrically because I felt that would have the most impact with the message I was trying convey. ‘She’ll never be your animal, she’s got her own personal hell.”’ In its simplest form I’m explaining that nobody can corner me into their perception of who I am and that I’ve got my own shit to deal with. By using ‘She’ I’m making it clear that I’m also speaking about a feminine experience. ‘Can’t handle your control, think of the love I’d give.’ is me begging the listener to relinquish the grip they have on me and questioning if they’ll allow me to be the earnest and vulnerable person I truly am.”

Check out the music video below, as well as the long list of tour dates they’ve got on the horizon.

Psychic Dance Routine is set for release on April 7, but you can preorder your copy today.
