Track: M(h)aol – Bored Of Men

Grayce Leonard

M(h)aol have returned to share the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Gender Studies’ last year, with new single ‘Bored Of Men’. They have also announced they are set to play further festivals including Latitude Festival and Pitchfork Paris.

Singer Róisín Nic Ghearailt says of the track,

“I wrote the lyrics of this song in a matter of minutes while we were recording together. The ideas had obviously been fermenting in my head for a while, and it was written during *that* extremely disconcerting & alarmingly public court case. The title of the song is very tongue in cheek for me, but it does reference a very real sense of frustration and exhaustion with the Patriarchy. When I say the Patriarchy I don’t mean individuals (although they can obviously perpetuate it), I mean institutional and structural oppression.”

With lyrics delivered in a sneering spoken word manner that cuts straight through the angular buzzsaw guitars and the steady tick tock thumping from the drums. It’s important poetry set to music that’s hard to ignore. You can’t help but agree.
