UK Artist of the Week: LibraLibra

Get ready to rock out with LibraLibra and their punk-infused new single “Candy Mountain,” out now. Turn this one up loud and annoy your neighbours. Go on, it’s Christmas.

With a riot grrrl energy that Bikini Kill would be proud of, LibraLibra take no prisoners on their latest cut, “Candy Mountain.” The single is packed with a punch from the offset as pulsating drum beats are met with raucous guitar twangs and front woman Beth Cannon’s incredibly dynamic and breathtaking vocals taking centre stage.

Talking about the single, LibraLibra explain, “This is a full blown revenge song. I wanted to set the scene of survivor rage, joining forces and triumphing over their abuser. There is power and strength in numbers, hence the choral themes within. It’s a fantasy, a daydream of taking back control and defeating evil. It’s that self-realisation within the song where you realise how quick sexual escapades can turn from fun to tainted.

It again explores the idea of consent, and how maybe the idea of sexual desire is very different in reality. It attempts to acknowledge that young women are allowed to dream and explore those dreams, but if we don’t want to follow through, we are 100 percent allowed to say no.”

“Candy Mountain” is in stores now.
