TUNE The Pearl Harts - Suck It Up
The Pearl Harts release new single ‘Suck It Up’ via their own Double Bang Records on 31st May.
‘Suck It Up’ pays homage to the 70’s with a stomp sound, cheerleader vocals and heavy riffs. The band said “Take it on the chin, we use this motto a lot. Being two women in a band, there is a lot we take on the chin. Coincidentally, just after recording this song we had all out equipment stolen on tour, so we ‘sucked it up’”.
Go a bit deeper though and the verses tell a different story, they are a reflection on what ‘sucking it up’ can do over time. You are strong, but you become weak due to the strength you’ve given. You have fun to forget, but that fun becomes self-destructive. You want to articulate, but all you can do is scream and shout. “‘Suck It Up’ is that teenage angst inside all of us.”
