Shelf Lives have released their new video for the track titled ‘All Grown Up’. A quasi experiment into the alternative for the alternative mind gives an alt-punk fuck you style anthem with a Molotov cherry on top presenting a frenetic musical journey designed to give us all that quiet pleasure that not all the music we’re fed came from Simon Cowell.
About Shelf Lives & ‘All Grown Up’
Beginning with the crude, yet accurate beckoning of “Everything is fucked”, “All Grown Up” sets the stage for a rambunctious post-punk anthem. Throughout the track, Shelf Lives emanate themes of playfulness by dissecting the mundane tasks we define as “adult-like”. “All Grown Up” offers listeners a relatable journey that explores the nature of personal growth, self-acceptance and the complexities of navigating societal expectations. Invoking the likes of Peaches, CSS, and Bikini Kill, “All Grown Up” provides a blistering commentary on authenticity, all while wrapped in an appealing electro-punk fusion.
Uniting from Toronto and Northampton respectively, but now based in London, Shelf Lives is the brainchild of Sabrina Di Giulio and guitarist/producer Jonny Hillyard. At the forefront, the band makes energetic pop songs that bring the abrasiveness and physicality of punk back to a small, cramped house party setting. Creating music so rowdy you can practically feel the sweat on the ceiling and the sound of crushed cans under your feet, Shelf Lives have won over scores of praise from the likes of NME, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, and Jack Saunders of BBC Radio 1.
Pairing hardcore punk’s brief bursts of energy with electroclash’s minimal and sleazy sonics, Shelf Lives raise themes of societal collapse and hyper-consumerism with a warped smile. Most recently, Shelf Lives prismatic brand of exciting electro-punk has enabled them slots at The Great Escape Festival, FOCUS Wales, Liverpool Sound City, and Glastonbury Festival.
