Siobamm lets her Meat Machine out to play in her latest single and video — showcasing on Tinnitist.

Referring to the track as her “horny hymn,” the roller-derby rocker says her fuzzy riff-fest is actually about her decision to give dating another try. “I wrote it in the summer of 2021 when I started to seek out physical and emotional intimacy again in a post-vaccinated Toronto,” she reveals. “After my long-distance relationship ended in late 2020, I decided to focus on myself and my own creative goals for the remainder of the pandemic. I far prefer meeting people in person, and online dating can be really stressful and hard, so I swore off dating and sex until I finished my creative projects for myself.

“Interacting with men again in intimate and sexual ways after not doing so for a while was a bit of a mental adjustment. This track is me owning my bisexual thirstiness, while also accepting my physical insecurities. The best sex happens when participants are vulnerable, so I created a song reflecting on some of my weird body fixations and asking ‘Who wants to fuck?’ I feel like years of being very forward in gay relationships has made me very blunt and not afraid to ask for what I want.”

Fittingly, Meat Machine blasts out of your speakers with plenty of seductive swagger, its gritty guitars and pulsating percussion complemented by the alluring openness of Siobamm’s vocals and lyrics. It’ll push your buttons in all the right ways.

Siobamm’s musical career was birthed from isolation caused by the pandemic, and the roller derby enthusiast found herself with the time to focus her attention on writing, recording and producing. By 2021, she had fully completed her self-produced debut EP Gloom Patrol, which mixed rock ’n’ roll and pop melodies with goth and alternative undertones. Now managed by Canadian rock darling Bif Naked and Peter Karroll, Siobamm continues to blast her own path in the indie community with her powerhouse vocals and undeniable skills.
