Premiere: Monkey Grip pull no punches with sex-positive debut single, Sorry

Premiere: Monkey Grip pull no punches with sex-positive debut single, Sorry

The Melbourne punkers are playing a heap of shows over the next couple of weeks.

Melbourne trio Monkey Grip have come bursting out of the gates with their debut single Sorry, and a video clip exploring gender issues and rape culture. Delving deep into the female experience when it comes to sexual activity, frontwoman Kim Croxford says, "#Metoo has already made possible important discussions about harassment and assault in the workplace and public life... We want to shine the spotlight on our private lives and talk about the source of these problems. Monkey Grip is totally DIY and to be honest I don’t know if we managed to pull off the visual representation of these ideas quite like we wanted to. We want to make it clear, for example, that we’re taking issue with the way media can be consumed, not porn and erotica. There are links to resources in the Youtube description that I hope help to frame the discussion we’re trying to have and are happy to continue having.”

It's a rollicking first salvo from a band with plenty to say, and we look forward to listening to them plenty in the future. Check it out below and catch 'em live at a bunch of upcoming dates, listed down the bottom:
