Read our Q&A with the band.
Conceived as a one-gig-only protest band (performing naked, covered in glitter), the courageous women from Glitoris have since been proclaimed ..”a powerhouse of feminist magnificence..” roaring through their potent blend of loud protest and fresh punk-pop.
Sick to death of being the only women on stage, Glitoris’s four women came together to destroy sensibility and stereotypes by performing in various stages of glittery undress.
Rejecting the objectification and commodification of bodies, Glitoris roars through a perfect mix that will have you thinking of Peaches, Rage Against the Machine and Bikini Kill mixed with shouts of ‘GLITORIS!’ and “UTERUS!”.
Ecstatic audiences strip their clothes and raise their hands in the Glitoris signal (a peace sign in one hand with the tip of the index finger placed in the middle) in fervorous support of the Glitoris phenomenon.
Glitoris’s debut anthem “Disgrace” represents their music as much as their protest, amidst heavy guitars, soaring harmonies and a chorus that will have you yelling with a fiery passion. The guile and grit of this exciting new band screams through the track, acting as a perfect musical outlet for the repressed rage and silenced symbols of our culture. They even have their own sign-off symbol: \*/
