Sløtface – Sponge State EP

Sløtface - Sponge State EP

‘Sponge State’ is a declaration of intent.

Label: Propeller Recordings
Released: 27th May 2016

Rating: ★★★★★

Sløtface mean business. With their name tweaked to prevent censorship (Facebook wasn’t a fan of Slutface, it turned out), ‘Sponge State’ is a declaration of intent. A line in the sand. From here on in it’s all or nothing.

It’s no gamble, though. Sløtface have an arsenal of brainy bangers to spook any opposition. From the overbearing media glare (‘Kill ‘Em With Kindness’) to a refusal to be intimidated (‘Get My Own’), everything is delivered with refreshing immediacy.

“We love good pop songs, so we always try to write them,” explains guitarist Tor-Arne. “We don’t like droney, seven-minute songs. We’d rather listen to Robyn than prog.” Us too, mate. Us too. Stephen Ackroyd
