Femegades tackle the impact of motherhood in their new scuzzy, punk rock single.
It’s meant to be a universally happy event in a woman’s life- having and raising a child. There’s still a certain level of controversy for any parent to admit that this phenomenon is not all rainbows and teddy bears but can in fact have a mental and physical impact on a parent’s well being. This can be a particularly tricky thing for mothers to disclose.
Never ones to shy away from tricky topics, the London based four piece release new track ‘Depleted‘ which explores certain realities of motherhood:
“There is a pressure placed upon women to savour every aspect of motherhood, even though the reality of non-stop mental and physical hardship often leads many mothers to burn out.
Despite this, it’s a subject that is still regarded as taboo, with society placing unrealistic expectations on mothers who ’should just be happy’”.
It’s a high energy, punk rock track tackling a serious topic- the exact combination that Femegades do so well.

The band create a sound that is as energetic and confrontational as it is nuanced.
Their uncompromising approach was none more apparent than on last year’s heralded EP, ironically titled ‘Not All Men’, a record that exhibited the band’s lyrical and sonic diversity.
‘Not All Men‘ was a follow up to their debut EP, 2021’s ‘Pornsick‘.
