Scowl Share Dizzying New Track “Psychic Dance Routine”

Scowl are about to release their new EP Psychic Dance Routine, a new expansion on their sound and expression unlike anything else. And to tide you over till you can hear the whole thing, they’ve shared the title track. It’s quite something.

From the dizzying bassline line to the distorted and hazy atmosphere of it all, through to Kat Moss’ undeniably haunting vocal display, it’s a rip-roaring piece of punk-speckled rock and roll that pushes and pulls at the different corners of the brain beautifully. It’s a complete shift of pace from what many would expect from Scowl on the surface, but every extra layer of intrigue and intensity is ever so welcome.

Kat had this to say about what it represents for her:

“My perspective of being consumed as the version of myself that is “performing” has shifted dramatically, while simultaneously grappling with 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 to 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.”

That sentiment is perfectly detailed via the music video, which finds Kat delivering a joint-popping, intensely personal dance routine, all before it becomes a bit too much.

Psychic Dance Routine is going to be landing on April 7th via Flatspot Records.

Here’s “Shot Down” which will also appear on it:
