Portland, Oregon Emo / Pop-Punk outfit Swiss Army Wife have shared their latest single “Aight, I’mma Head Out” ahead of their album Medium Gnarly being released on January 6th, 2023 via Really Rad Records.
Kade Dale (Vocals/Guitar) explains:
‘Aight’ is the first song that this iteration of Swiss Army Wife wrote together. It started from the intro riff, something Will was just playing at practice, and we kinda spun it out from there. So it’s fitting that it ended up becoming this manifesto about who we are and what we value: community building, inclusivity, and the creation of safe creative spaces. We always dedicate this one to our friend JJ, who books DIY shows here in Portland. We saw the incredible community that people like JJ were fostering, and wanted to write something that acknowledges how special the scene we’re in is while recognizing that like all things, it’s impermanent.
The Portland, Oregon, band’s particular take on Emo–heavy gruff vocals might seem quaint among Punks bands in 2022/3, but the band’s upcoming debut full-length, Medium Gnarly, takes a back to basics approach, keeping scrappiness in focus.
