Philadelphia duo Nicole and Rachel make up SLUTEVER. The friends were brought together through a shared love of grunge and ’50s girl groups. To date they have already shared the bill with the likes Best Coast, Cults and The Coathangers whilst releasing two EPs; Sorry I’m Not Sorry and the recent Pretend To Be Nice.
Their racket is a pleasant one. They kick out short, sharp bursts of brash and sleazy lo-fi garage rock. It is catchy, infectious and bubbling with feel-good vibes, fuzzed out riffs and a combination of youthful energy and recklessness.
SLUTEVER will embark on their first national (US) tour this summer. It is hard to stomach that we on the other side of the pond may never get to see so many great emerging US bands like SLUTEVER live. Oh well.
Pretend To Be Nice is out now on Bantic Media and their debut can picked up for ‘name your price’ via bandcamp.
