Childbirth are a supergroup in the sense its members are all in other hit bands (Julia Shapiro of Chastity Belt, Bree McKenna of Tacocat, Stacy Peck of Pony Time) and also that they do good for the world while in costume.

Childbirth’s forthcoming album, ‘Women’s Rights’, is wet-your-pants funny - subject matter includes a trashy friend bringing coke to a baby shower (‘Baby Bump’), characteristics that warrant an instant ‘swipe left’ on Tinder (‘Siri, Open Tinder’) and dating vapid IT douches (‘Tech Bro’).

Lyrics on ‘Women’s Rights’ are highly quotable - from ‘Tech Bro’: “I’ll let you explain feminism to me / If I can use your HD TV.” Like the majority of effective political art, ‘Women’s Rights’ shows rather than tells. The songs describe what is messed up in the world so evocatively that it needs no commentary and always has a biting sense of humour.
