She/Beast Shares Fan Club Leader

As a Texan, you’ve got to be head over heels in love with this new track from She/Beast, particularly as Sweden’s Katja Nielsen says it’s a “country song who tells the tale of the murder of Selena Quintanilla.” Even putting in on play from the get-go, you can feel your silhouette cast upon the screen as you sit atop your horse staring off into the immense Western frontier. Part of the joy is looking for the little undercurrents of the tune that keep it relevant, and they’re certainly just beneath the surface, so I won’t pull back the covers for you, but I promise, the tune’s a worthy place to spend some time right now. You’ll find this jam on Violent Tendencies, out everywhere October 22nd via PNKSLM.

She/Beast Announces Debut Album

There’s a certain timelessness to the 60s girl group sounds; even when used as kitsch, it’s still utterly charming. So, it should only be fitting that She/Beast, the project of Katja Nielsen, draws from that period for musical inspiration as she moves to announce Violent Tendencies. Our first listen definitely has that sort of swinging with your partner vibe, cheek to cheek on the dance floor as tin-covered stars hang loosely from the ceiling. Still, what makes Nielsen’s approach a bit more unique is that she’s still got that penchant for punk aesthetics remaining; it’s the attitude left over from her role in Arre! Arre!. Stoked to hear how this all shapes up in the long run; the LP is out via PNKSLM on October 22nd.
