Potty Mouth have released a new single ‘Let Go’ as part of the compilation album Sunday, Someday featuring various bands, who alongside Potty Mouth, organized to meet virtually every Sunday from April 2020 after the pandemic put a spanner in the works of their touring schedule.
The group is comprised of the UK-based alt/punk band Nervus, the indie/folk/punk songwriter KOJI, the singer/songwriter Solstice Rey, the multimedia artist Full on Mone’t, as well as crew members who would have been on the tour. They decided to put together the record to fund top surgery and aftercare for a member of the group while raising awareness about the systemic oppression of QTPOC community members.
“We’re in a space where we gather on a regular basis, even though we’re separated geographically,” says KOJI of the group. “But our relationality isn’t institutional. It’s loving and reciprocal. And we’re able to inhabit ourselves more fully than we are in other music spaces that we’ve experienced.”
It’s exciting to work on something with people I feel so connected to and understood by,” says Abby Weems (Potty Mouth). “This release is an opportunity for all of us to use our collective passions, skills, and resources to support each other as artists and as people with our own personal needs.”
High-energy pop/rock trio Potty Mouth originally formed in 2011 in a Northampton, MA basement after growing tired of watching the dudes have all the fun on stage.
