Femegades round off a successful 2023 with the release of their final single of the year. A nuanced, layered alt.rock track, ‘Toolish’ follows on from the guitar-laden soundscapes of ‘What Is Yours Is Mine’ and scuzzy banger, ‘Depleted’.
‘Toolish’, is another illustration of Femegades willingness to approach challenging subject matter without fear or favour. It is a song that is dedicated to anyone who has been unable to combat unwanted attention from that guy. ‘Toolish’ also aims to serve as a wake up call to any individual expressing opinions such as “why didn’t she just fight back?”
‘Toolish’ exemplifies all that is good about Femegades: passionate, visceral, hooky, grungey and rebellious. A subtle, undulating track, Toolish builds throughout as grooving baselines, soaring guitar notes and an intense drum beat is complimented by singer Em’s powerful vocal.
