Winona Fighter doesn’t care what you think in their new single, “I’m In The Market To Please No One.” Along with the release, the act announced that they’ve signed to Rise Records ahead of their upcoming South By Southwest (SXSW) showcases and upcoming spring tour. Additionally, they’ve released a music video for the track, which illuminates their punk attitude while adding another layer to the meaning of the song.

The video opens with frontwoman Chloe Kinnon in a therapy session, looking distraught and confused. In the song, she explains her distress and eventually gets up from the couch and starts raging with her bandmates. The chorus is filled with appropriately pointed anger, “I don’t like to think you’re having fun/I hope you suffer/(And) boys like you should rot for what they’ve done,” illustrating the deeper theme of why Kinnon wrote this song.

“Did you know one in three young, excited, full of potential-women go to college and experience dating abuse of some sort? I wrote this song for them.” She continues, “More than it coming from a place of anger, it comes from a place of power. It comes from a place of wanting to start a conversation. I want people to be able to scream this song, mosh to this song, feel like they can gain control of their narrative.”

Through unearthing a letter that Kinnon wrote to a previous partner, she realized how powerless she felt. “It made me feel gross, but it also made me realize I have the opportunity to get how I really feel, after years of growth, all out on paper.” Mixing OG punk with indie, alt-rock, and pop-punk, Winona Fighter is a fresh force in the scene that needs to be front and center.
