Track Of the Day – Coach Party – “FLAG (Feel Like A Girl” )


I sense a bit of an Isle Of Wight take over this week!

First up it’s Coach Party following up their excellent  After Party Ep with their new single “FLAG( Feel Like A  Girl.)”  The track employs a battering ram of guitars that mirror frontwoman Jess Eastwood’s excoriating and righteous anger as she explains: “FLAG” is a song for those who know what it’s like to feel unsafe, objectified or hurt by someone. It’s intense anger where you just want to see that person suffer as much as they made you suffer.  It takes you to the point where you’ll do anything to protect the people around you from this person, whether you know them or not. Look out for your mates.”

Check out the video below, directed by Dan Broadley of which the band say – ‘FLAG’ is our ode to out of date scum buckets who hold on to a dangerously distorted set of morals (or lack of), and who should be dealt with firmly. The song speaks for itself, but, for us, Dan’s concept and vision for the storyline further strengthens the important, relevant and aggressive message of the song. And it was sick to dress up like Jane Austen stuff.”
