Sløtface unveil music video about ‘women being harassed on their way home at night’

The rising Norwegian punks fight to 'remove everyday sexism'

Sløtface haved unveiled their new video for ‘Bright Lights’ – tackling the subject of the dangers that face young women walking home at night. Check it out below.

Taken from their acclaimed new EP ‘Empire Records’, the new video from the rising Norwegian punks seeks to raise awareness of the ‘everyday sexism’ that faces females at night time.

“We wanted to show people all of the things women do to feel safer when they’re walking home at night alone,” singer Haley Shea told NME. “We think it’s wrong that you should feel less safe being a woman on the streets, and worry that people don’t pay enough attention to it as an issue. It’s all about removing everyday sexism and making the world a safer place for everyone. We think awareness is a good place to start.”

“Maybe sometimes it feels like you’re putting someone on the spot when you’re asking them to have real opinions, which seems like a weird way to approach music in general but for our sake our whole thing is trying to write pop music that’s catchy enough but it’s actually about something important,” Shea told NME about the band’s approach. “Like we’re tricking you into listening to this feminist anthem with like super-clear tendencies but you never realised it.”
