Four piece femme riot group Cryptic Street released their single and music video for Let’s Go Suki. Let’s Go Suki is energetic, loud, and commands your ears and attention from start to finish. The track conceptualizes the story of a girl (Suki) who constantly finds herself running away from the oppressions and expectations set on her by society, confronting her own inner conflict, overcoming stigmas, and channeling her sense of rebellion. Watch it via YouTube below.
The band chose to make the video as DIY as possible and showcase themselves as a band and their crazy adventures in an honest and genuine light. They’re a group of empowered women who not only formed a band, but are fronting a movement all the way from their humble roots in the islands of Malta, a place where the music scene is relatively undiscovered, and a place Cryptic Street plan to put on the map.
The Cryptic ladies experienced an uproar in their musical genre back in 2016, and exposed a new era of the band. Leona (vocals), Janelle (guitars), Leanne (bass) and Michelle (drums) threw their fiery personalities into overdrive, and created the knicker-twisting yet introspective style they are known for today. They took out their new music on a test-run during their 2016 Barcelona tour, which become the direction the band was going to take from there on out.
The infectious globe-trotters continued in 2017 as they marched across Spain and the UK, supporting Acid Mothers Temple and Pins, among others. The pivotal decision to record an album, with the aid of David Vella (Rammstein, Siousxie and the Banshees), also surfaced in 2017. This resulted in Titty Monster; a burst of punk attitude with a dash of psychedelic, inner conflict and hell-raising fun. Beware of the Titty Monster, because it’s coming soon and it’s coming for you.
