EP NEWS: Beach Bunny - 'Blame Game'

Got a little distracted trying to write this... can more bands release online video games to go alongside a new song? Treat yourself to a little browse of the Beach Bunny site here for a racing game (the soundtrack is an 8bit version of the new track, which you'll win a download of if you're quick enough in the game.) Back to the music - their new EP Blame Game is due on 15th January via Mom+Pop Music. It follows their debut LP Honeymoon, and where that one centred on 'the highs and lows of new love', the new EP 'takes aim at toxic masculinity, sexism and the emotional labour of unreliable relationships.' 

The first taste of the EP is Good Girls (Don't Get Used) for which the brill video is below - in both track and video the band's frontperson Lili Trifilio is fighting back, reclaiming her power over romantic partners that try to play her. The tracks were written in quarantine and recorded in Chicago over a week in August, with Joe Reinhart on producing duties. 

Talking about the first track Lili explains... "as a veteran of engaging with emotionally unavailable people, I wanted to create a sassy song that calls out players by talking down to them as if they were children, showing that poor communication skills and mind games are immature. It shifts the blame to the person that was acting disrespectful, instead of myself. The song also hammers home the point that I know my worth; I'm not afraid to call out players on their stupid behaviour and I'm not going to tolerate being thrown around emotionally."
