Kamikaze Girls are a UK based duo that is comprised of Lucinda Livingstone, guitars and vocals, and Conor Dawson, drums, that has been in existence since 2014. They have been touring Europe and the USA alongside many well known acts, including Muncie Girls, Pup, The Menzingers and Modern Baseball, all the while building a solid fanbase, now with Sad they have released their eagerly awaited debut release.

Challenging attitudes and stereotypes has been an element of punk since day one, Kamikaze Girls use their music as a means to challenge attitudes and taboos surrounding mental health and gender inequality. Musically they are rooted in the Riot Grrrl movement of the 1990’s, Kamikaze Girls play a fuzzed up discordant take on punk that alternates between aggression and mellow tones, the vocals mirror this approach, Lucinda Livingstone alternates between a deadpan breathless delivery and screams of anguish, which is appropriate given the subject matter they cover. Kamikaze Girls have stated that their aim is to show strength and solidarity with others suffering mental heath issues and to eradicate gender stereotypes in music, worthy ambitions that are backed up with an impressive vitriolic wall of noise that sounds like it was more than the product of just a duo.
 
Sad is an honest and open EP that discusses subjects that are still considered taboo, or are glossed over and ignored by mainstream media, and for that alone they are worthy of your attention, but there’s more to them than just their lyrical content. The music is a discordant fuzzy noise that recalls the likes of Bikini Kill in their prime, if you’re a fan of Riot Grrrl or socially aware punk rock then the Kamikaze Girls debut EP will be something you should investigate. Sad is a grass roots DIY EP whose message says some of the things that need saying.

Interview: Kamikaze Girls

Kamikaze GirlsKamikaze Girls is a UK based two piece who play a unique blend of punk with ingredients from all kinds of genres. The songs often have poppy choruses but they’re emotional, raw and noisy in their own way. The love singer/guitarist Lucinda Livingstone has for fuzzy noises and guitar pedals is no stranger to this sound. Their debut EP Sad is one to watch out for and will be released through Wiretap Records (North America) and Bearded Punk Records (Europe) in September. Thematically it tackles issues of mental health the band has struggled with in the past: “We wrote it when we weren’t having a very nice time and every time we play it we feel better about it” says Livingstone. We had a chat with Kamikaze Girls’ Lucinda Livingstone and Conor Dawson about their upcoming release, Riot Grrrl and how it was like to play the Fest for the first time. Read More…
