After their 2018 debut single ‘Minute On Fire’ exploded on YouTube with 1.8 million streams (largely thanks to fan-generated content) Sydney-based screaming rap-rock-electro-pop mutants RedHook have returned with their new single, ‘Turn Up The Stereotype’.
“I might be a fuck up, but at least my fuck ups are original,” roars vocalist Emmy Mack in the song’s pulverising two-step glitch breakdown, in a loud and furious statement of the band’s identity. “I wrote this song because I was pissed off,” Mack explains.
“No matter who you are — whether you’re a musician, a sports person, a student, or if you work in some other field — you’ve probably encountered the type of person who takes pleasure in seeing you fail. Maybe who even goes out of their way to try to make it happen,” she continues.
“‘Turn Up The Stereotype’ is one part F-U to those real life bad guy stereotypes and a call for them to take a long hard look in the mirror, and one part empowerment anthem to everyone else who’s ever felt victimised by their sh*t. We’re done with it.”
‘Turn Up The Stereotype’ is available worldwide since Friday, October 26th!
