Single Review – Sløtface – Backyard

New single ‘Backyard’ from Norwegian alt-punk’s Sløtface is yet another slice of raucousness. Starting off with crunchy guitar lines things fill out into the band’s pop infused melodies, though never losing that aggressive punk edge. Encapsulating the freedom of behaving like a toddler for 2 minutes 51 seconds, the track is as energised as a small child of the nineties after having just eaten an entire bowl of the blue smarties. Almost completely recorded in one take the track feels vibrate and spontaneous. Singer Haley Shea describes ‘Backyard’ as; ‘celebrating the adventures you had as a kid that often came from a desperate need to not be bored….It’s about trying to capture a sense of that wonder and fun in a new way as you grow up.’ Without a doubt this single screams of those moments when you confused your parent by behaving like a wild-child in your own backyard.
