“Bad Girls” single

Planet B offers an homage to the tuff attitude and revolutionary spirit of rapper/singer M.I.A. with a cover of her women-empowering anthem, “Bad Girls”. With their signature sci fi distortion, Henshaw wields his MPCs as sonic weapons as Pearson takes on Matangi’s haughty swagger. The band’s abrasive and inventive take on hip hop backed by punk ethics aligns perfectly with an artist like M.I.A, making this cover completely logical even while hearing the slight absurdity of Justin Pearson’s sung/screamed vocals from the perspective of a “bad girl.”
