We couldn’t miss the chance to see Liverpool’s The Mysterines in London at Highbury’s The Garage last night! Our supersnapper Keira Anee went along to capture the vibe. In her words “What a great band!”
LOUD WOMEN is delighted to bring you the premiere today of ‘Fade Away’, new single from Cuban-American-in Berlin Dyan Valdés. This delightfully ear-wormy retro-synth electropop ballad is one FFO Saint Etienne, and comes with an emotive video perfectly capturing the song’s themes of anxiety and panic.
The good people of Boo TV came along to this year’s LOUD WOMEN Fest and filmed this brilliant mini-documentary featuring interviews with loads of the bands – including IDestroy, Breakup Haircut, GENN, I, Doris, Vulpynes, Piney Gir, LibraLibra and Murder Club! It’s so cool to have this little snapshot of an herstoric day, and glimpse into the ginormous green room that the bands enjoyed chilling out in together after performing! Settle in with some popcorn and check it out here …
Today’s track of the day comes from Femegades: ‘Leash’ is taken from the band’s debut EP Pornsick.

This song is angry yet defiant, the second verse in particular was inspired by the story of Nikki Addimando who was originally serving a 19-year prison sentence for killing her abuser.
Our video of the day comes from South London’s Shelf Lives: ridiculously catchy debut single ‘Shelf Life’ comes with a video that demands you sit right down and watch to the end. Peaches meets Monty Python.
The talented Sister Lucy (Abi Sinclair) released ‘Big Kid’, the second single from her upcoming debut EP, Big Girl Pants. A strong follow up to her debut single, ‘Dream’, Sister Lucy continues to explore the reality of adulthood.
Alice Mary is back with her third single released this year, ‘Surgeon’. An emotional song with simple lyrics and woozy instrumentals, Alice Mary hits a nerve yet again. ‘Surgeon’ explores the feeling of seeing someone you love hurt themselves and the inner struggle if you could’ve done more to help them. You can check out […]
GIRLI (Milly Toomey) has claimed video of the day again with her latest single, ‘Ruthless’. Filmed in a junkyard with styling inspired by Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette mixed with Vivienne Westwood’s punk, this video is the perfect showcase for ‘Ruthless’.
