Single Review by Reva May
YNES’ new single, ‘God’s Little Punching Bag’, is out now via new label GRRRL GROANNN. The song title lives up to its name. ‘God’s Little Punching Bag’ delivers punch after punch in every single line.
“Sonically, ‘God’s Little Punching Bag’ mainly takes inspiration from the Britpop revival of the mid-to-late 2000’s – whilst still maintaining it’s own sense of DIY imperfection. This is appropriate to mention – because the track itself is about embracing the imperfect. It’s three and a bit minutes of opening your arms and saying “do your f*cking worst”.
The outcasts have always been empowered, I just didn’t know it then. I used to welcome pity for living a life less than perfect, and I embraced my fate as a basketcase. In whatever form the universe throws you a punch to the face, GLPB is the anthemic angst that shrugs “what, you expected me to cry?” “
