“Political activism has always been a part of my experience with music.”
Lauren Denitzio, leader of the Brooklyn-based punk band Worriers, is here to challenge norms, to defeat the despicable. It’s been a life of zine-making, leftist-feminist organizing, and shout-along chorus-writing for Denitzio, whose latest album is a must-listen. Survival Pop, out tomorrow (Sept. 29) on SideOneDummy Records, slings hooks aplenty while fighting for social justice and internal peace.
“I think about the record as a whole as songs for self-preservation,” Lauren D says. “Regardless of the kind of rock music we make, I really like pop music and I place a lot of value in that.”
