LISTEN: Sweat Threats – ‘Pop My Cherry’

If you’re looking for a (much needed) antidote to “dumb college male bravado” – look no further than Sweat Threats‘ second single, ‘Pop My Cherry’. It’s a riotous few minutes of abrasive, entertaining “post-punk party music” that mocks the hyper-masculine college lad stereotype, and it’s a track designed for “a public too often deprived of a good time”.

Matthew Sutton (Tayne) and Niall Jackson (Bouts, Swimmers) formed Sweat Threats towards the close of 2016, and have been rehearsing and working on new material ever since. They released their debut single ‘Hermit’ at the beginning of 2018, aided by Jesse Gander’s (Japandroids, White Lung) impressive mixing skills, and ‘Pop My Cherry’ has quickly followed.

With this new release, the pair have proved that the year they spent locked away in a rehearsal space, remembering why they started making music in the first place – has totally paid off. Their riff-heavy verses provide the perfect lead-up to an unexpected chorus that gleefully mocks the sodden disappointment of (accidentally) soiled sheets. Bounce around your bedroom whilst listening to Sweat Threats’ new single below, and follow the band on Facebook for more updates.
