VIDEO NEWS: Loose Articles Release Video For New Single ‘Kick Like A Girl’
Punk quartet Loose Articles have released a video for their new single Kick Like A Girl, taken from their forthcoming second EP Chaos.
Speaking about the title of the single, the band says: “It suggests that women can’t play football but we’re reclaiming that slur and throwing it back in people’s faces. We want to take these stereotypes in football and turn them on their head.”
Vocalist Natalie Wardle adds: “‘Kick Like A Girl’ tackles the narrow mindset of some men towards women and football, as well as a sprinkle of footballing references ranging from Duncan Furguson to Beckham’s Mohican. With our music we like to raise awareness on issues like misogynistic slurs and attitudes towards women in sports. With this said we still make the tunes fun and comical to grab the attention of people first, before they then realise the tune is making more of a statement on a deeper subject.”
The track has been released ahead of the UEFA Women’s Euros and is out now via Alcopop! Records, whilst their EP Chaos is set to follow later the year.
You can see Loose Articles live at Beat-Herder Festival (Clitheroe), TRUCK Fest (Oxfordshire) and Psych Fest (Manchester) this year.
