Sometimes I am annoyed when I discover a band that is so fucking awesome, I'm sad I hadn't known about them sooner. This is the situation with Sweden's Arre!Arre! In the true meaning of punk, these women do not give a fuck what anyone thinks of them. The music is riot grrrl surf punk with song titles like "His-story Moves in Circles" and "Tight Ass." Their new EP titled Heavy Breathing is up now for pre-order and gets released August 14th. To better understand their message, this is what the band had to say about themselves:
"Society and the media often act as if a woman’s entire existence and self-image depend on how fuckable they are, according to a very narrow standard. We’ve had enough of it. Heavy Breathing is a celebration of women who make no excuses for their sexuality, their body, their lifestyle or their opinions. We want to champion female sexuality owned by women themselves. The sexuality that’s full of cellulites, laughter, self love and free will! Through our music we’re saying F*ck You to the media’s and societies distorted image of us. You do you. Literally - buy an sfp2 and make it rain."
– Arre! Arre!
Hell fucking yes.
