The entirely independent all-female trio House of Women have self released their debut EP, People Printing, alongside a brand new video for Hypocrite. If you’re yet to discover House of Women, Hypocrite is a compelling introduction. At first, Kyla Lanai‘s voice drifts ethereally like a Gen Z Hope Sandoval, its serenely beguiling beauty casting a spell as the band ratchet up an air of foreboding tension around her. And then the track erupts into a fireball of caustic grunge dynamics, her vocal soaring into a visceral wail of anger and recrimination. Its power is heightened by the band’s control of loud/quiet/loud dynamics, staying patiently restrained until the moment comes to detonate its full visceral ferocity.

Hypocrite and the previously released Few Too Many Times both feature on the People Printing EP. It is completed by four brand new tracks in the shape of 6.0, Sid’s Song, Elsa’s Lullaby and The Arc. Still all in their late teens, House of Women met while studying at a music college in East London where they bonded over a shared love for classic ’90s influences such as Alice in Chains, Mazzy Star, PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Nick Cave and Jeff Buckley, as well as contemporary artists, including Fontaines D.C., Turnstile and IDLES.
