Happy Friday Addicts! I’m celebrating the end of the week with a stellar music video premiere from Canadian grunge rockers Solhounds.
Hailing from Winnipeg, Solhounds have been making music together for the past two years. They’re gearing up to release their debut album, but decided to tease fans and music lovers alike with a 2 song release to start. ‘Side A: Body Bandit’ & ‘Side Be: A Man (I Taught Him)’, are anthems for today’s feminist movement, with messages of empowerment and equality at their core.
Lead singer Elise Roller is a force to be reckoned with, vocally, lyrically and philosophically. Backed by the massive grooves of bassist Morgan Davis, the power shreds of guitarist Andrew Bontey and the savage rhythm of drummer Ian Clements, Solhounds breathe life back into the grunge metal music of the past with a voice full of passion, grit and pure fire. And based on these teaser tunes, their album is going to be HUGE, both in soul and power. And we’re thrilled to bring you the video for “Body Bandit” today.
When asked about the inspiration for this video, this is what the band had to say: “This video is a depiction of a vilified, powerful woman manically writing about her disparaging exploits; taking advantage of people for her own immunity in a world that has victimized her by putting her into a box. Inspired by the tales of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, sex workers, and friends who enjoy the game.”
You heard it here folks. “Body bandit” is an anthem for the bad bitch in all of us, (and I use that word as the highest compliment), and we should all embrace our inner body bandit.
So without further ado, here it is,”Body Bandit” by Solhounds. Turn it up and enjoy!
Keep up with the band on their website and socials below, and tweet us at @weraddicted to tell us what you think.
