SLØTFACE’S ‘TAKE ME DANCING’ IS PERFECT FOR YOUR SUMMER ROADTRIP
Jul 29, 2016
Norway’s Sløtface makes us want to break out all of our favorite pop-punk hits from the past (“If U C Jordan,” “Ocean Avenue,” etc.) The band’s latest single “Take Me Dancing” has a youthful spirit that makes you feel like a teen again and is heavily rooted in feminism.
“Some people were skeptical of us releasing a song about dancing and getting drunk because they felt like it made us ‘less believable feminists’, but that is kind of the whole point of this song,” the band said. “The feminism we have faith in is all about individualism and being free to be yourself regardless of gender.”
The song was originally written as a response to the male voice in Big Star’s “Thirteen.” “We were trying to write the girl’s answer to ‘won’t you let me walk you home from school?’ because I love that song, but think it portrays a very chaste and old school version of femininity,” said the band.
It’s a perfect addition to that summer mixtape you were planning on making for your trips to the beach, and it’s a reminder that it’s okay to make mistakes.
