I, Doris - "HRT"

London's I, Doris are described as "mummy-core" and "kitchen-punk," so I don't even know how we're supposed to resist that. (Not to mention that all members go by the stage name Doris.) Their new single, "HRT," isn't quite as fast or punk as I expected it to be. It's more along the lines of ? and the Mysterians than what we'd normally call punk. "HRT" is a blast of a song, though. It's keyboard heavy with strong leanings towards early garage rock and post-punk. And I can gurantee that it's the best song about hormone replacement therapy you've ever heard.

Bassist and songwriter Doris (aka Cassie Fox) says of her band's new song: "so many people with wombs face an uphill battle in obtaining the healthcare they need. 'HRT' is about the struggle to be taken seriously and the fight to access the care we need to live our lives on our own terms. Also, it’s a disco banger. Now, what was I just saying?”.

You can watch the video for "HRT" below. The single is available now via Loud Women. For more on I, Doris, check out the band's website.
