Fronted by Norwegian expat Freddy Fostvedt (along with Margy Noble on bass and drummer Joshua De Laurentiis), the Househats trio have pitched up with their second track - after debut single 'All Together' - 'Stop', a two and a half minute buzzy garage-punk roller. With its catchy styling and edgy riffs, along with thumping drums, it has a feel of Parquet Courts, or at least US East Coast, rather than Australia's Melbourne.
"Even though it’s a high energy song, it really promotes taking time for yourself," say the band. "Life can get hectic, everything is piling up on you – sometimes you just need to slash your tires, and put yourself first. Come back to that anxiety-riddled shit storm later."
