Shelf Lives

Though Shelf Lives has only been a band since 2021, they’ve already played acclaimed sets at Glastonbury, supported Skunk Anansie on a full EU/UK tour, and joined fellow confrontational noise-makers Bob Vylan and HO99O9 on the cover of Gigwise. In April 2022 they released their first mini-album Yes, offence – a danceable outburst of dissonant guitar riffs, jackhammer beats and black comedic lyrics they’ve described as “a reflection of a broken society verging on the edge of cultureless, all while wearing a party hat.” Societal extremes – whether it’s wealth, poverty, pop culture or patriotism – are captured not through heart on sleeve lyrics, but in the extremes of their sound. Kicking the whole thing off, Sabrina announces – in the style of a Real Housewife by way of Veronica Sawyer – “If I give you a Chanel necklace and you choke on it, that’s your problem not mine.”
