FEMM Have a New Song

If you don’t know FEMM, they had a catchy wee song a few years ago called FXXX Boys Get Money which was loads of fun and featured the band in full-on mannequin mode. New Single ‘Level Up’ sees them ditch this ridiculous shtick (yo!) in favour of something much more normal. Thank god.

Level Up is from FEMM’s EP 404 Not Found, which you can order from our old friends at JPU Records.

Ps when you get to that page ^^^ it’s not a really a 404. Ahahahaha.
