Formed in 2012, Norway’s Sløtface is a punk band with livewire energy and introspection beyond their years. Today, the band reveals a parodic High Fidelity-inspired video for EP title track “Empire Records”. The “Empire Records” video premiered with CLRVYNT today and is available to post/share HERE.
Lead by vocalist Haley Shea with guitarist Tor-Arne Vikingstad, bassist Lasse Lokøy and Halvard Skeie Wiencke on drums, with every move they make, they look to spin conventions on their head. The band is bringing this passionate virtuosity and their energetic live show to the US with a handful of must-see performances at SXSW including the BrooklynVegan, DIY and COLLiDE showcases.
Haley’s forceful, firework-spitting punk slices through you with an immediacy and confidence of someone several records in. Whether it’s a love song from an unexpected perspective or a critique on power & ego, the foursome’s message and undeniably catchy riffs have inspired critics and fans across the globe. Catch them at SXSW and be sure to stay tuned for more exciting news in 2017!
