Petrol Girls 'The Future Is Dark EP' 12"
Petrol Girls release their new EP The Future Is Dark via Hassle Records. The EP is named after a Virginia Woolf quote that writer Rebecca Solnit uses as a starting point for her essay ‘Woolf’s Darkness,’ in ‘Men Explain Things To Me.’ Lead track Sister is a tender and expansive post-hardcore track that alternates between cool spoken-word intensity and fiery screaming eclipses. It’s a song about the ties of sisterhood, and learning to trust again after being pitted against each other. The EP also includes the previously-released single Survivor, which is inspired by the growing movement against sexual violence. Strike closes out the EP and is a track about political organising and how taking care, making space, reflecting and recognising our fuck ups are just as important as the direct action itself. For fans of: La Dispute, Bikini Kill and Gouge Away
