Longtime MM fave, Marika Hackman has announced a brand new single Boyfriend (out 31st March) – and it is quite a departure from her previous offerings. The introspection and self-consciousness have been swept away, and instead we get the sound of liberation, reinvention, spontaneity and collective joy. This is some serious feral female energy at work.
Boyfriend is a muscular post-punk call to arms that packs a pretty gutsy and uncompromising punch.
“It is payback for all those times I’ve been interrupted mid-snog by some seedy wanker asking to join in,” she says… seems pretty clear!
