LOUD WOMEN Volume 5 is out today – Bandcamp Friday – and it’s our biggest and most varied comp yet.

As ever, LOUD WOMEN bring you the brightest and the best new female and non-binary talent from the alternative/DIY scene, with this time 24 artists – from Austrian hardcore punk Petrol Girls, and 90s indiepopstars Bis, through electropop Ukrainian protest artists Bjelle & Krapka, and soul sisters Deuxes, to rave punks Killdren. Something to suit all ears!

All profits from the release are to be donated to Musicians Defend Ukraine, an organisation drumming up support from the music industry to support the war effort in Ukraine.
