Bio

Perve Endings shape a genre of their own - matching fiery punk and rock‘n’roll with their unapologetic admiration for pop and soul. Since emerging over 18 months ago, the four-piece have built their name as a truly compelling live act, lighting up stages all over the country with their rotating vocals, magnetic harmonies and truly memorable tunes. In their short time together, Perve Endings have landed coveted supports, playing with Aussie favourites such as Amyl and The Sniffers, A. Swayze & The Ghosts, Mini Skirt and Pist Idiots, as well as an east coast Australian tour with Ruby Fields. They’ll round out 2020 with their debut EP, Slow Burn.

Perve Endings' incendiary and addictive new bop “Token” is exactly what you think it’s about - doing the absolute bare minimum to make it look like all efforts have been made. This is something this quartet know all too well being a predominantly female-identifying band navigating their way though the current climate of the Australian music industry where it can feel like there’s a whole lot of box ticking in lieu of meaningful change.

Vocalist/guitarist Mikki elaborates: “Token was written for anyone who feels that they are only included in something because their inclusion would be on trend or benefit the image of whoever asked them. We are grateful to have had so many great opportunities to play, and we knew it wasn’t always about ticking off the token female-identifying-fronted band when we were booked for a show, but there were times that it did feel just like that. For those moments, we had a poignant, in-your-face anthem to scream back at them.”

Good band really showing their mettle on this new track that's wired with energy and discontent in equal amounts.

Cutting through the bullshit of modern tokenism, especially visible in the music industry!
