The energetic, five-piece band Badmouth is only one year young, yet has already made a name for itself singing for social justice. After a year of playing at studios and stages both at home and around the midwest, Badmouth releases their first single this week, titled “Resting Bitch Face.” Telling the trials of being a woman in a man’s world, “Resting Bitch Face” is bound to empower you to stand up to both overt and micro-aggressive behaviors and commentary in your own lives, and join them in smashing the patriarchy.
Badmouth’s new single catapults its audiences through a day in the life of a New York City teenager facing the ugly, frequent trials of street harassment. “RBF” is the ultimate culmination of a year’s growth as a band, featuring melodies, beats, and harmonies as intricate as the misogyny their lyrics describe. Every note they play can be interpreted as both a feminist call to action and a celebration of reclaiming hurtful, sexist language.
See them live at Alphaville in Brooklyn on August 12. https://www.facebook.com/events/1635981280055408/
