Julkaisija: Joteskii Groteskii
From the grim dark north comes an explosion of color and sound! Horseface from Umeå, Sweden, are back with a 7” on Finnish label Joteskii Groteskii.

Flip side for Siivouspäivä. Here Horseface place Crass style march drums aside some kind of wonky dancehall beat, topped off with frustrated vocals in Finnish about the state of the Swedish tax system.
The colorful and naive sleeve was designed by Tampere based artist Arsi Keva and the single comes in 300 copies.

They started playing together in 2013 and have since released two cassettes, one LP and toured both Sweden and
