Damn the Witch Siren – “Nasty” (audio) (premiere)

Feminism and flat-out-fun coalesce on this vibrant, insanely catchy new track.

Led by the pair of Bobbi Kitten and Z Wolf, Columbus, Ohio’s Damn the Witch Siren is all about exuding strong girl power amidst a very high-gloss, eclectic, fun hybrid of pop music styles. A great example is the new track “Nasty”, in which electronic, dance, hip hop, ’80s pop, and funk all collide in a glorious pile-up that’s as delightfully garish as Kitten’s multihued image.

“This was the last song we wrote for our album Back to Dreaming and we had a lot of fun with it,” the band says. “It’s kind of a feminist rant in the guise of a geeky, girly-pop song. The album has a lot of dichotomy to it, and this is probably the silliest moment, but being silly and fun can be very empowering.”

Back to Dreaming will be released 24 October. Pre-order it via Bandcamp.
