Cork band Shookrah’s latest outing was premiered on Clash yesterday and lead singer Senita explained the the magazine that the track was inspired by vogue-balls in the West of Ireland.
“The song’s braggadocious theme is inspired by the emerging vogue-balls and drag culture in Ireland, specifically in Cork, where I recently stole the Drag-Queen title of ‘Miss Opulence’ at Miss Candy Warhol’s annual event. The song for me re-imagines these safely created spaces amongst friends, ripe for invoking your most confident self, and falling prey to the music.
“‘Flex’ very much embodies that, you’ve got Nile Rodgers-esque guitar picking contrasted with the devilish call of the synths and bass in the chorus alongside spooky vocals.”
