Premiere: Coltana – ‘Break Her’

With a recent name change, Brixton-based band Coltana have previously been featured in the likes of The Independent and Metro, and have played at Glastonbury Festival not once, but twice! Now, with a brand new single due, they look set to continue their success.

‘Break Her’ is a gritty, highly infectious slice of punk rock. Oozing the riotous, raw vocals of Catherine Martindale, the track is propelled by racing riffs, interweaving hooks and a ferocious energy. Written about the way that women are conveyed in society and how they are so often pitted against each other, it’s a truly powerful offering that’ll leave you hungry for more.

Of the track, Martindale explains:

“Jealousy is an emotion we aren’t supposed to express, yet capitalism encourages it and so we are left isolated.”
