A Love Letter Playlist By Hairband
Despite only forming just over a year ago, Glasgow 5-piece Hairband are fast becoming one of our favourite bands.
Featuring members of Breakfast Muff, The Yawns, Spinning Coin, Lush Purr, Kaputt, and Rocky Lorelei, the supergroup have come together to bless our ears with their jangly riffs, and intricate harmonies.
We're v excited to have Hairband play our website launch party in Glasgow as they join our lineup of other femme music makers. In prep for our party, they've put together a playlist of the musicians that inspire them the most for you to wrap your ears around.

“In light of recent events and more than ever, I have been made to feel so small, so vulnerable, so powerless and so voiceless as a woman of colour. Thank you for your music, and your words, they constantly remind me that it is okay - in fact more than okay - to take up space in this world."
