The Amniotics releases debut social commentary anthem ‘Boomerang’

Irish feminist alt-rockers The Amniotics are a four piece band inspired by everything from Pavement and Le Tigre, to more contemporary artists such as Courtney Barnett and Taylor Swift. Known for their raucous live performances and advocacy for women in the industry, their debut track ‘Boomerang’, a thrashing cynical take on the Dublin arts scene, is out today on all streaming platforms.

Here is a quote on the track: “I wrote ‘Boomerang’ after living and working in the Dublin music scene for a while, and adapting to the quirks and frustrations of it- living in a city where there’s more hotels than affordable housing, where boys will roll you a cigarette as a flirting move, and where institutions that supposedly champion creativity and expression are collaborating with the some of the most unethical corporations in the world. As a woman in the music industry, most of the time you have no choice but to deal with what’s thrown at you and try to live with it, and, when you can, give as good as you get.”
