It’s been a couple of years since Sleater-Kinney returned with their ace album ‘No Cities To Love’, but since then they’ve been pretty a pretty busy bunch. Now though they’re back with a brand new track – hurrah!
‘Here We Come’ has been released as part of the ‘7 Inches for Planned Parenthood’ series, and is every bit as blistering and ferocious as you’d want it to be. Fuzzed out but strident and muscular guitars rub up against Corin Tucker’s always-thunderous howl. There’s even a pulsating guitar solo in there too. It’s a lot to fit into just two and a half minutes but – naturally – they pull it off effortlessly.
Back in 2015, we talked to Sleater-Kinney about their reunion and ‘No Cities To Love’. You can revisit the interview here.
