Listen to the utter weirdness of the band's latest single, "Masks", via BrooklynVegan, here.
Prissy Whip wields a shrill and utterly disorienting brand of noise rock, somewhere in the league of dynamic and confrontational acts such as Daughters, Throbbing Gristle, Butthole Surfers, and Melt-Banana. Vocalist Crow Jane (Egrets on Ergot) provokes the audience with alarming wails and a convulsing strut. Effects-drunk guitars and pummeling drums collide and careen happily off the rails. The band will even prank its audience with catchy moments that are equal parts infectious and deranged. Hailing from Los Angeles, Prissy Whip exudes a reckless energy rarely felt since the heyday of its punk scene, and has shared the stage with abrasive, chaotic bands of the same breed including Clipping, Deerhoof, Head Wound City, Retox, Hot Nerds, Psychic Graveyard, Planet B, and The Primals.
Their upcoming EP, Swallow, will be released September 21st digitally and on clear vinyl, limited to 250. Pre-order vinyl, here.
