Sleater-Kinney unveil new single 'Untidy Creature'

With their eagerly-awaited new album landing later this month, Sleater-Kinney have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Untidy Creature' comes accompanied by a stunning one-shot music video, directed by Nick Pollet, and follows on from the previously shared efforts 'Hell' and 'Say It Like You Mean It' in previewing their new LP 'Little Rope', which is out on the 19th January via Loma Vista Recordings.

Speaking about the new offering, they said, “'Untidy Creature' was the first song we wrote for Little Rope, although we didn’t know it at the time; we weren’t certain we were even working on another record. We also worried it had come too easy, the song featured two elements that come very naturally to Sleater-Kinney: a big guitar riff, an even bigger vocal. But as the year wore on, and our choices and bodily autonomy shrank, our feeling about the song changed. It became a gift, somewhere to put our darkest fears, and our deepest hopes. We sometimes feel trapped or angry, and yet still we breathe.”

While adding about the new video, “For the video, we wanted imagery that spoke to the themes which permeate Little Rope: uncertainty, restlessness, urgency, all of the in-between and discomfiting states with which we’re forced to reckon. So, we came up with the idea of a woman holding her breath in a bathtub for the duration of the song, unsure of her motivations, not knowing whether she’s seeking escape, disappearance, absolution, or simply a moment of quiet and reprieve. We love the tension created by an act that defies both custom and comfort.”
