Riotous live shows are IDestroy’s calling card. Since forming in 2015, the trio, who met as students in Bristol, have played more than 300 gigs across the UK, Europe and Asia, selling out shows in South Korea and multiple tours in Germany.
IDestroy’s debut album We Are Girls was released February 2021. Rife with swearing and sarcasm and steeped in camaraderie and attitude, We Are Girls is a party-punk album which reflects the energy and chaos of their live shows. Dig deeper, however, and there’s sharp commentary in its ten spiky songs, from the ‘hands-off’ warning of punchy lead single Petting Zoo to the title track’s ire at the obstacles faced by female musicians.
We Are Girls has received high praise from publications such as The Sunday Times, The Daily Mirror, Classic Rock and countless others. Radio play is rapidly gaining traction too, with airplay from Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1), Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6 Music), Amy Lamé (BBC Radio 6 Music), Janice Long (BBC Radio Wales), Frank Skinner (Absolute Radio) alongside continued support and playlisting from Radio X, Ireland’s RTÉ 2fm and US station Sirius XM. The album’s title track also featured on Spotify’s editorial PRIDE playlist in collaboration with Punka.
