MissDefiant - 133T
133T speaks out against a nightlife dominated by drugs with a strong anti-drugs message “I’m telling you, don’t want that stuff”. MissDefiant look at the pressure put on young people to “get in with the hype” and the glamorisation of drug culture being “irrational, passional, fashionable, international, impractical, fanatical, mechanical, supernatural.”
133T is hacker speak for elite, nodding to the status of people who “want to turn me”. The heady electro beats recreates the frenzied yet fun nature of nightlight as the girls craft the backdrop for their message. The single is the latest in an ongoing collaboration between singers Emily and Jordan and producer Mike Tournier combining a perfect blend of electro and pop. The single launch will be complimented by a remix from Humbringer and an acoustic version of the track which amplifies the message to a wider audience.

The girls will be performing at The Water Rats in Kings Cross on the 19th April.
