Australia’s cross-cultural punk-rock outfit The Maggie Pills have today shared the band’s latest single, ‘Rip My Heart Out’, lifted from the Lickety Split 7” co-released with fellow Melbourne outfit, The Miffs, out Friday 3 February via Tuff Cuff Records. Pre-orders for the physical 7" are available now.
Appearing on the Melbourne music scene in August 2019 just one month after founding members, Delfi Sorondo and Mario Perez moved to Australia, The Maggie Pills have since carved a reputation for their live shows and relentless gigging, while sharing universal truths through their lyrical content - covering topics like the destruction of land, displacement of rightful owners, discrimination and sexism.
Their latest offering, ‘Rip My Heart Out’ is the plaintive cry of the intensity of pain, love, and collapse, drawn from the ache of the childhood home. Inspired by the master musicians of the ‘90s, ‘Rip My Heart Out’ bleeds with vulnerability and seethes with jagged riffs, rolling basslines and spiralling drums.
According to The Maggie Pills lyricist and frontwoman Delfi Sorondo, ‘Rip My Heart Out’ lyrically draws from the often-symbiotic existence of love and pain in childhood, and the way those memories interfere with romantic affairs in later life.
