Sheer Mag made waves with their first two EPs, and now the gritty, classic rock-indebted Philly band are back with another new song, “Can’t Stop Fighting.” Presumably the precursor to an upcoming release, the song uses Christina Halladay’s authoritative voice in the same way all the rest of the band’s songs do, espousing a rousing, anthemic, and infectious message of empowerment: “All my life I’ve felt the eye of the catcall/ We’re striking back, baby, and you can find me in the vanguard/ You say you don’t understand — I can see the blood, it’s on your hands.” Listen below.
Paloma walks home at night from the maquiladora
8 days later, no one has saw her
sometimes she worked late
don’t that show you just whats at stake?
we can’t stop fighting
at home, my sister- she told me a story
at the end, there’s no Grace or glory
just the trial of a man
with no motive for where he stands
all my life i’ve felt the eye of the catcall
we’re striking back baby, and you can find me in the vanguard
you say you don’t understand
i can see the blood, it’s on your hands
