London post-punks deep tan highlight male violence against womxn with new track ‘beginners’ krav maga’

They're also set to hit the road later this year.

London post-punkers deep tan have released their first new material of the year, brand new single ‘beginners’ krav maga’.

The band explain: “‘beginners’ krav maga’ is a response to the idea that womxn should take self defense classes in order to feel safe on the street at night. Womxn shouldn’t have to. Yet it seems like every day there’s a new Sarah Everard, Sabina Nessa or Aisling Murphy. Educate your sons, brothers, guy friends. Male violence against womxn is an epidemic and it needs to stop, so we made a pop song to talk about it.”

The first new music since last year’s Speedy Wunderground single ‘tamu’s yiffing refuge’, the band are set to hit the road this May and June. You can find the dates after the track below.
