If you were lucky enough to bag tickets for Slaves’ intimate club tour last month, you’ll have remembered being welcomed to their dingy venue of choice by a feisty set from Welsh group Estrons. For those who weren’t, seeing Estrons on those kind of tours should soon become things of the past anyway. They’re destined for bigger and sweatier things.
Today, they drop the first single from their forthcoming EP ‘She’s Here Now’, due on November 11. On ‘I’m Not Your Girl’, we find frontwoman Tali on blistering form, inspired by a pair of fuckboys she overheard bragging about women, (“Just because I said I want it, Don’t mean you can call me on it, Listen close to what I’m saying, You’re not asking I am telling”). She explains “it’s a big song about insecurities and that cesspool of crap surrounding teenage emotions that still exist in your 20s and 30s.” Intense, bold and catchy, it’s Estrons’ finest moment to date.
