Formed in 2013 for an International Women’s Day gig, Petrol Girls identify explicitly as a feminist band and draw on personal experiences to challenge and ridicule sexism, as well as exploring wider political themes, such as alienation, mental health and the current anti-austerity movement. Mental health and relationship issues open up into wider questions about alienation, borders, complicity and control. It draws together different musical influences in a way that reflects this collision of ideas in the context of a culture that feels increasingly less human.

Their music combines manic jagged rhythms with vocals that range from furious screaming to intricate melodies and harmonies. Drawing direct influence from Refused, White Lung, Bikini Kill, Fugazi, RVIVR, Propagandhi, At The Drive-In and War On Women, Petrol Girls have sculpted a sound and a performance that is not only explosive, but highly detailed and raucous.
