You may love the distorted guitars, pulsating drumbeats and don’t-give-a-s**t attitude in Zipper Mouths by Manalishi, but your neighbours may not!
Hailing from Manchester, the track finds itself in the patchwork quilt land of punk/grunge/alternative. It’s definitely not a song to forget and altogether is cohesive in its message to people who simply won’t shut up; utilising mettlesome gritty guitars vividly to convey this message.
The song namely comes to an abrupt halt around the 2-minute mark, perhaps as a juxtaposition between the people who can’t shut up and the band who can convey a narrative without overdoing it. The video is equally as captivating; showing puppet-like creatures going through the stages of frustration.
Don’t miss out – listen today!
