For some reason, I don't equate Switzerland with punk rock, but Bitch Queens may change that. Their new single, "Recycled Youth," is two minutes and thirteen seconds of no nonsense rock and roll. It's fast and heavy with an impossible to resist groove. Between the chant along chorus and the "Woah-oh-oh!" gang vocals, this is a killer punk song. Bitch Queens live in that space that's pure punk that has a lot more in common with rock bands than the typical punk tropes, and you simply can't go wrong with that. By the time the guitar solo kicks in, you're going to find yourself wanting to check out more of the Swiss punk scene.
You can watch the video for "Recycled Youth" below. Party Hard(ly) is due out October 28 on Spaghetty Town Records in the US and Lux Noise Records in Europe. The EP can be pre-ordered here. For more on Bitch Queens, check out the band's website.
