Video Premiere: Slut Magic – ‘Dark Purple’

Updated: Nov 15, 2019



An angsty, sonic make-out session from the dirty heart of Brooklyn, New York, Slut Magic make punk rock for a modern era. Blending pointed barbs and heavy-handed opinions about fashion, social media, and contemporary intimacy, the band are an unabashed product of the modern age, cutting their way through the muck and the mire to make something new.


Crashing into existence with undeniable energy, they’re a band on the rise, revelling in rash experimentation and a rejection of the current norms. When their debut album, ‘In My Mouth’ was released back in April of 2019, Slut Magic found themselves in the middle of a riotous melee, surging into the public consciousness with an unapologetic snarl.


Throughout 2019, the four-piece of Emma Sky, Shannon Zakarison, Hot Boyfriend (aka Michael Bottomley), and Marc Hall have continued their punk-ish crusade through popular music with two dark, hip-hop singles, the landmark ‘Rainbow Eyes’, and the bristling, intimate sounds of ‘Dark Purple’. Two massive glimpses into the upcoming sophomore album, ‘Trauma Queen’, which is set to be released in 2020, the tracks have become hallmarks of the band’s sound.


A new premiere that we’re proud to be hosting, Slut Magic have now revealed the official music video for ‘Dark Purple’. Featuring shifting trip-hop beats and “F*ck being your lady” vibes, the video is a stylistic assault from the brilliant Manuall Focus.



Of the new video, the band were keen to express their thoughts, adding, “This is our cute little story about everyday abuse. We love sharing stories with each other and our friends about the ugly shit we’ve experienced, so we figured, why not just do what we normally do for a video? So the video is essentially a standard Slut Magic conversation in standard Slut Magic attire. We dress like this all the time. Lol.”
