IT’S HERE!!! Our Remix EP
The injustices in our patriarchal society are being recognized more and more. People all over the world have fought for equal rights for centuries and sacrificed their lives to get where we are today. But we still have a long way to go to an equal society.
Highly Offensive is our protest against patriarchal oppression. It reminds us of both the small nuances and the profound structures that keep us women down yet today.
As icing on the cake, we have let five amazing gentlemen create their own remix of the song.
The original recording of Highly Offensive, featuring guest muscians John Essing from the band bob hund (guitar) and Rasmus Nyvall from Makross From Malmö (clarinet), was produced by Cure-a-Phobia and Måns Wikenmo at the legendary Tambourine Studios in Malmö, Sweden and mastered by Jonas Siöström/ Dynamic Audio

We are dropping the bomb!!! Our new single Barbie Girl!!
Haven’t we all heard “Barbie Girl”, Aqua’s cheerful, pink shimmering although ironic pop hit from the 90’s. But what is the lyrics really about?
Barbie lives in an artificial fantasy world. She is called bimbo and you can do whatever you want with her. Brush her hair, undress her anywhere, touch her perfect body and play with her whenever and how you want.
Our interpretation of the song highlights the underlying dark and skew in the lyrics.
It’s no pleasant fantasy world Barbie lives in. Under the perfect surface, patriarchal structures, absurd body ideals and double standards hide.
Barbie is called bimbo because she wants to please and adapt to the norms. She is constantly observed and judged and is always expected to be available. She should always have a smile on her lips, but she should not enjoy herself; she only exists to please others.
Last year’s viral campaign Metoo has forced society to open its eyes a bit of sexual harassment and abuse of women. But how far have we actually come when the US president, a year after Metoo, says “it’s a very scary time for young men” about the men who are being accused.
We mean that it has always been scary to be a woman, young and old. It’s time for a change, and Trump and his henchman be scared for a while!
We give you our new single:
La Chanson du Cochon – the Song of the Pig
This song is a call for humanity to start taking care of our world and each other. To make the world a better place we must all take responsibility for our actions.
Pollution of sea and nature. Descent and exploitation of animals and plants. Devastation of rainforests. Limitations on human rights. Racism, homophobia and misogyny. Class differences. We are Generation Ego.
Who is actually the pig? The little harmless animal that is exploited and slaughtered by man or the human pig, who ruthlessly spoils the world for its own gain?
La Chanson du Cochon, taken from our upcoming third album Regeneration, features special guest appearances by the guitarist Johnny Essing (member of the legendary Swedish band bob hund), Nils Andersson (who plays Đàn bầu) and Anne Martin Tryffel, the Head of Economics at Cure-a-Phobia (grunts).

Since december we have been recording new stuff at the legendary Tambourine Studios in Malmö, Sweden. We have invited a total of 13 amazing guests on the different tracks.
The album is about oppression, setbacks and liberation. Growing up, releasing control, breaking apart, recreating yourself and getting stronger. We want to stand up for sisterhood and urge for change.
This year we are focusing on writing new music. Hopefully we can release a new album next year. We know, it’s been a long wait since the last one! This one will probably be a little bit different since we have the wonderful bass player Anne Marte in the band.
This i a tiny preview of what is coming.
