Something needs to change, but not Sløtface. They're practically perfect as they are.

Sløtface, the artists formally known as Slutface, are not føcking about with their latest cut, that’s for sure.

Shooting out at 100mph, ‘Sponge State’ is the band’s “term for the feeling that something needs to change”, according to vocalist Haley Shea.

“The song is a reaction to the apathy and lack of action that is symptomatic of our generation. It is about the fact that making the world a better place isn’t about sharing a post or tweeting. Social media is a powerful tool for social change, but real change comes about by doing things and being an active participant.

“Specifically, it is meant as an encouragement to our peers. Lots of them say that they wish they could get more engaged, or protest, or that they wish things were more like they were in the 60s and 70s, and I thought a lot of those same things when I was younger. But there are real causes to get engaged in, in the real world, and it is our job, as the generation coming of age, to change things.”
