My first exposure with Chastity Belt was on a track released during my 1st year of university. Titled “God Damn” it played like a Dalston soundtrack for Lena Dunham’s Girls. Unapologetic and raw it was a fantastic tune for the summer. I was then overjoyed to hear that on March 24th they’re putting out a new album “Time To Go Home” with the featured track taking pride of place here.
The music is excellent punk inspired guitar rock but it’s the unapologetic nature of the band that really gets under my skin. They just sound like the kind of people you’d want to sit in a bar with during the 90s. The track brings to mind music such as Speedy Ortiz after a few beers and a long day. Pre-order the album here.
