VENUS GRRRLS share transformative new single ‘Bloodsick’

Fresh from their biggest headline performance at The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds straight after the release of their returning single ‘Divine’, VENUS GRRRLS are proving to be an undeniable addition to the UK rock scene. Today, the Leeds/Newcastle-based rock coven reveal their transformative new single ‘Bloodsick’ and details of their first-ever UK headline tour set for September.

‘Bloodsick’ – recorded by Sugar House and mixed/mastered by Grammy-nominated Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Nova Twins) – sees VENUS GRRRLS crystallise their emerging goth-grunge sonority with a strong early riot grrrl-influenced undercurrent. Evoking an alternate timeline where Bikini Kill predated both Romanticism and Siouxsie and The Banshees, it’s VENUS GRRRLS narrative talent that stands out once again; lead singer GK’s vocal inflections are a commanding presence against cascading riffs and synth motifs. Continuing work with their trusted collaborator Misha Warren, ‘Bloodsick’ arrives with new visuals.

“’Bloodsick’ describes a change, or a metamorphosis of a being that has become far more insular and isolated” GK says of the track, “It is a grief of what once was, that transcends into a bittersweet liberation of a new body, or way of living both physically and emotionally.”
