Dirtnap Records have added the Scrunchies to their roster, the band will release their label debut, Feral Coast, on April 1st, ahead of the release you check out the video for the first single, No Home PlanetScrunchies bring an energetic live set, recalling the messy and cathartic energy of late 80s grunge, punk, and post-punk bands. Their forthcoming sophomore album continues their consciousness of the intersection of personal and political, pushing the edges of the soft and the heavy, with intimate yet surrealistic lyrics and melodic hooks.

Minneapolis, MN’s Scrunchies was formed by Laura Larson (Baby Guts / Kitten Forever) and Danielle Cusack (Bruise Violet). Larson and Cusack began Scrunchies after mutual admiration of each others’ bands as well as a short stint together in a Buzzcocks cover band called Buzzcunts. Both are passionate about encouraging young women and queers to find empowerment in playing music and embracing a DIY ethos. With the addition of Stephanie Jo Murck on guitar and Bree Meyer on bass, Scrumchies exploded onto the Twin Cities music scene as a supergroup with their debut album, Stunner. After a year of touring the US, and with Murck and Meyer shifting their focus to their other projects in late 2019, Larson and Cusack were joined by bassist Matt Castore (Condominium) who is also a renowned music engineer and is currently developing Soft Cult Studios, a collective recording studio in the Twin Cities.
