Cultdreams Rage Against Misogyny & Right Wing Politics On New Single ‘Not My Generation’
Lo-fi punk/shoegaze duo CULTDREAMS (formerly known as Kamikaze Girls) have revealed their new single ‘Not My Generation’—the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming second album Things That Hurt, set for release on 16th August 2019 via Big Scary Monsters Records.
Alongside the new single, the band are delighted to announce a further run of UK/EU headline tour dates for September 2019. Earlier this month the pair announced a run of August UK headline tour dates and an appearance at ArcTanGent Festival in support of the new album (see below for full listings), with tickets for all dates on sale now at: http://www.cultdreams.co.uk
On ‘Not My Generation’ Cultdreams develop their sound once more, leaning heavily into a newfound knack for expansive layering and atmospheric soundscaping. Lyrically, guitarist & vocalist Lucinda Livingstone is as cuttingly incisive as ever, looking back on the time period following the release of the band’s debut EP SAD—on her own mental state, the state of the world, and how it affected her and others around her at that time.
The band say: “Not My Generation is about being angry and frustrated about what you see in the world. It's about getting out of your own head, and realising everything outside of it is just as bad.
It's almost a pledge or a hope that our next generation isn't going to continue to be racist, homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic, all of the things we see happening in our communities every day. Most of which are caused by privileged people in a position of power, over people of colour, queer people, trans people, people seeking refuge...
We can all do more if we try.”
