Introducing: Chastity Belt

Wednesday 18 March 2015
Words Ailis Mara

Four girls from Walla Walla, Washington have a post-post-punk energy that has developed from their time at college together. Now referring to themselves as ‘post-post-post-punk’. Post. Punk.

Chastity Belt consists of guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. This woman band are gonna be your best friend. They’re funny, slightly odd and sometimes vulgar but isn’t that what everyone wants in a friend? Plus their music is bound to grab your attention, especially when they shout “vagina” down the microphone.

Lead single of the same name as their upcoming second album release, ‘Time To Go Home’, is a slower more melodic sense of what Chastity Belt is. They’re playing at SXSW festival this week before going out on tour as a support act for Courtney Barnett.
