Most of the seven members of Twat Union were living together in South East London and joked about forming a punk band. A year later, they were asked if they knew any punk bands for an event and decided to form a band. Now they're releasing their debut single, "UTI," a song about urinary tract infections. This might just be the most fun song about UTIs ever recorded. The song opens with the line "I had sex now I'm on antibiotics," and just goes from there. "UTI" is going to get them compared to Wet Leg, mostly because of their home country, sense of humor, and insanely catchiness, but Twat Union have much more of a punk edge to their sound. Even if you'd typically bristle from the subject matter, "UTI" is going to end up as one of your favorite songs of the year.
Front woman Kate Mac says of her band's new single:
"... people don’t talk about UTIs very much, but most of us have had them, and most of us hate them (no kink-shaming if you like them but we would love to hear from you if you’re actually a fan). And if you don’t get them, we guarantee you know someone that does. This song is for everyone to shout, laugh, cry, and generally express your anger about female and non-binary medical problems (we know some men get them too) and maybe we can change the narrative around when and how it’s ok to talk about issues down there.”
