Muncie Girls Locked Up

Short sharp and sweet with an acerbic undertone Muncie Girls return with a new video for their latest single ‘Locked Up’ from their forthcoming album Fixed Ideals which arrives via Specialist Subject 31 August 2018.

‘Locked Up’ could be partly interpreted as a list of things which are used to manipulate our fears and desires in order to keep us under control (locked up). Indeed the very things that we are told will free us or bring us joy could actually be viewed as tools of oppression, not unlike that story whereby prisoners build their own prison without realising its a prison and are so invested in it, they would defend it to the death!

Muncie Girls vocalist and guitarist Lande Hekt explained that ‘Locked Up’ does address a whole raft of things that she found bizarre about life, things “that we’re expected to not only accept, but celebrate. It’s kind of depressing really,” whilst also explaining that it relates to the prison system and claustrophobia. For a band who often write about the fucked up nature of the world and their difficulties embracing many of its aspects, they do so in a way that inspires, uplifts and offers hope, which is a rare gift.
