Out now from Krinkle Bearcat: ‘Kill U In Yr Sleep’. Ever been in a relationship with such a vile human being you’ve had to struggle every day just not to stab them in the face? Erika from Krinkle Bearcat has.

I’m still really proud of myself for not actually having done it because it’s based on a true story. That was the first and only boyfriend I ever lived with and I hadn’t known it was possible to go from loving to loathing someone SO much. We had to live together for a while after the split and it was really really terrible. I realized he hadn’t ever actually cared about me and I was probably just like this novelty to him. Things got so petty and he was so cold. Not that I was ever a perfect human either, but I distinctly remember laying there on my pillow watching him while he was sleeping and thinking what if I just made you STOP BEING. This was 15 years ago now, I had a lot of issues…

We’re really pleased she managed to control the murderous urges – she might never have met Michael and recorded this excellent garage punk song. The rest of their EP, The Little Things, is sounding equally fun.
