Not All Men EP by Femegades: Review
The four-piece punk grunge release ‘Not All Men’ by Femegades is the indie world’s latest shocking revelation. The London-based band Femegades led by 4 feminists inject modern punk energy into the music landscape, both sonically and lyrically, while also experimenting with a lo-fi, punk-infused atmosphere in the vein of artists such as The Slits and X-Ray Spex.
The title ‘Speechless’ is the debut single, exposing a gritty sound with an anthem-like feel. The blazing 2.5 minutes of this powerful experience will have you hooked up to keep anticipating fresh hits in the following numbers. Femegades have remained true to their original sound by combining catchy, clean voices and melodies with hard-hitting lyrics and a diverse, frantic sensation that is intriguing and powerful, aimed to utilize itself as a platform to raise awareness on sensitive subject matters that others seem to shy away from. Their music has a modern edge that separates them from the pack.
Therefore, the EP “Not All Men” demonstrates the band’s boldness in tackling taboo topics like women who have been victims of male violence and reinterpreting them through the prism of their own brand of politicized melodic punk rock with a hopeful message. If you think the world needs more loud and feminist bands like Femegades, then be sure to check out their music right now and support their cause by sharing their latest EP ‘Not All Men’ with your loved ones!
