Devon trio Muncie Girls have released a new EP.
‘B-Sides The Point’ features tracks written alongside those for album ‘Fixed Ideals’.
“The song ‘Rain’ is about the government, old men in power, fear-mongering, the FTSE 100 and having friends who know how fucked up everything is,” explains vocalist Lande Hekt. “Most of the songs on this record are quite topical, with a concept song about a single mother of three trying to survive on the welfare state (‘Five Miles’, which is based upon an article that author Sue Townsend wrote in the 80s about how the welfare state left her scouring the streets for pennies) and a song about how much I don’t enjoy Made in Chelsea (‘Idolise’).”
