about

loosestrife Montréal, Québec

Loosestrife is about being vulnerable and noisey, generous and queer. Claire Lyke (drums, vocals) and Shaun Weadick (guitar, vocals) make visceral punk rock. We flirt with pop music and have a crush on post-hardcore. In our live shows we want the audience to dance and we make up dances for you as well. We want to make power, not take it or guard it but build it up all together, in solidarity. ... more
