Shookrah release new track ‘Flex’

Shookrah return with new single ‘Flex’.

 

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.”
