Shelf Lives Share New Single “Skirts & Salads”

South London duo Shelf Lives return this week with new single and video “Skirts & Salads”, marking a year since the release of their self-titled debut single “Shelf Life”. The new single is released today alongside a typically idiosyncratic video created by Ben Pollard.

“Skirts & Salads” is the first new music to be heard following their widely praised debut mini-album Yes, offence – released on the band’s own Not Sorry Mom Records imprint in April earlier this year.

“‘Skirts & Salads’ is inspired by general female stereotypes, we’ve kept it pretty obvious with the lyrics. It’s written and delivered in a tongue in cheek manner and we thought it would be interesting incorporating chauvinistic language but using it to our advantage in a way; referring specifically to the line ‘I like/want my girls like that’. Without really realizing it we are highlighting how annoying it is, as well as how deeply rooted these ideas and language are in our society and….sub-consciousness.”
