The Skinny: Self-described on their Facebook page as “pure fuckin fuzz filth,” we couldn’t agree more with this adept explanation of the music being peddled by Dearne Valley Pit Village, South Yorkshire-based band, Steel Trees. Don’t want to take our or their word for it? Well, then check out the exclusive premiere of the band’s latest music video for their song “Womb Raider”.

Teeming with equal parts pop, stoner and grunge influences, this song is yet another rad jam in the band’s growing catalogue. Of the sond the band elaborated: “‘Womb Raider’ was recorded at McCall Sound Studio By Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, Jarvis Cocker, God Damn, Youmeatsix, Drenge etc) in the heart of Sheffield, exactly 10 yards from Sheffield’s muckiest knocking shop…gross.”
