PWR BTTM SHARE ‘PROJECTION’ AND ANNOUNCE ‘UGLY CHERRIES’ UK RELEASE + TOUR DATES

PWR BTTMNew York charmingly fierce, queer indie/punk band PWR BTTM – led by Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce – announce the UK release of their dazzling debut album ‘Ugly Cherries’ (out 7th October via Big Scary Monsters), featuring new tracks ‘New Hampshire’ and ‘Projection’. The album – recorded by Christopher Daly at Salvation Recording Company in New Paltz, NY and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music – deals with the duo’s personal experiences with queerness, gender and adulthood.

Speaking of the alt-rock beauty, Ben Hopkins explains: “‘Projection’ is a song about feeling unqualified to be the way you see yourself because of the way other people see you, and how other people’s perception of your identity can warp your sense of self. It’s about being exhausted with the pressure of fitting in and throwing a shiny, glorious middle finger to those who doubt you.”
