Muncie Girls – “Respect” Video

In a few weeks, UK pop-punk trio Muncie Girls are releasing their debut album, From Caplan To Belsize. They’ve been sharing singles over the past few months — “Gas Mark 4,” “Balloon,” and “Gone With The Wind” — and their latest is “Respect,” in which Lande Hekt pulls no punches in tearing down society’s degradation of women and rampant sexism: “You weren’t taught it: respect, or a sense of value of your equivalents,” she venoms on the opening line. “And it has a knock-on effect: misogyny and tolerated violence.” The video for the song shows her sitting in a room with Bukowski on the bookshelf and naked posters on the wall, two surefire signs to run the other way when you’re dealing with a dude. The track is searing and undeniably catchy and, in a lot of ways, makes me feel like they could be a spiritual successor to the dearly departed Chumped. High praise! Listen and watch below.

From Caplan To Belsize is out 3/4 via Animal Style Records/Specialist Subject Records/Uncle M Music. Pre-order it here.
