AWmusic Spotlight: Glitoris
Glitoris. Four fearless female musicians who roar through uncompromising, unapologetic and unforgettable punk rock shows. Having kicked off the year with a headline slot at Sydney’s Psych Fest and an 8-night New Zealand Fringe Festival residency with Sound & Fury, Glitoris are ready to bring their theatrical brand of punk mayhem on the road!
Glitoris recently finished recording their debut album at Sydney’s Pet Food Factory studios with Jay Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb). Due for release later in 2018 via Buttercup Records and featuring their most powerful material and image to date, the album builds on their critically acclaimed The Disgrace EP (2016) and explosive inauguration day single ‘Trump Card’ (2017). Glitoris will tour the album nationally/internationally later in 2018/2019. 2017 highlights included: performances with Amanda Palmer, Regurgitator, Frenzal Rhomb and Shonen Knife; endorsements with Mesa Amplifiers (US), Vance Custom Guitars (AU) and Bareknuckle Pickups (UK); US and AU-wide radio play; feature in Australian Guitar Magazine; one of Triple J’s ‘7 most important new voices’ on International Women’s Day; and multiple National Live Music Awards nominations.
