Norwegian punks Sløtface

By: Oliver Horton

Sløtface are punk feminists from Norway. Last year they changed the way their name was written but not pronounced (from Slutface) as a middle finger to social media censorship. Their music is in your face and political.

Disorder: What are you working on right now?

Slotface: Right now we're in a little bit of an intense period, since we're all trying to pass our exams at the same time as working on our live set a lot. And, of course, are making some demos for new songs to come. 

 

What people, places or things inspire you?

[Bassist] Lasse's family cabin on Lokøy – an island outside Bergen where we live. It's right on the sea, and we wrote a lot of things from our last EP there. 

 

What artists turn you on?

Right now we're really into the new Solange record, Bon Iver's new album, Frank Ocean, and Bruising, who we just played with in Manchester. 

 

Who do you want to be when you grow up?

We all want to be rock stars of course!

 

What is the secret of your success?

Practicing our instruments a lot, listening to other music and trying to write music we would want to listen to. 

 

What has been the biggest surprise along the way?

How much paperwork you have to do to be in a rock band. 

 

Who was your first crush?

Well, we all have different ones and don't want to embarrass each other, so hope it's all right to not give you any names.

 

Who are your favourite fictional heroes?

Nancy Drew and Spiderman are awesome!

 

What/where do you like to eat or drink?

A good thing about touring is that you get to try burgers at about a million different venues all over the place. A really good burger is great.

 

Where do you feel most yourself?

On the sea, fishing with family. 

 

When are you at your worst? 

Half of us get really cranky when we're hungry, the other half are terrible when we're really tired. 

 

What do you hate the most? 

People who stand too close to the luggage conveyor belt at airports. 

 

What talent do you wish you had?

We really wish one of us could draw, or take really good photos. 

 

What is your dominant characteristic?

I guess we're all kind of intense about the music stuff. We have a really strong work ethic as a band. 

 

What do you appreciate most in your friends?

Their adventurous side and the fact that you never know what you’ll get into. 

 

What innovation/invention do you love most?

Anything that makes it possible to record music. Imagine a world without the ability to record music – that seems really sad to us. 

 

Unpaid endorsement: what can you recommend?

Long woollen underwear that you wear under your clothes. Genius for winter, genius for touring. 

 

What is your idea of happiness?

Playing a really fun set for a packed venue. 

 

What is your present state of mind? 

Right now we're really excited for our US tour that starts next week. 

 

What would you do if you were not doing this?

We'd probably all be at university actually studying.
