A band named after Pétroleuses, a nineteenth-century French female warrior group, makes its message implicitly clear. This formidable post-hardcore monstrosity likes to use the blunt ax to call injustice by its name.
Petrol Girls comes from a DIY community where politics and punk are inseparable. Their rock-hard songs fight against outdated ideas such as nationalism and gender binary models, and the oppressions that go with it.
A Petrol Girls concert often feels like you’re moving in the middle of the battlefield. Strange harmonies, transverse, twisting rhythms and choruses that seem to drill through solid concrete. The musical reality check that everyone needs from time to time.
