Absolutely Not Celebrates Queer Outsiders in New 'Strictly Top' Video


"You got a problem with me?" 

After dropping a series of glam-garage EPs, Chicago post-punk band Absolutely Not has announced their new album, Errors, due out July 28 through No Trend Records. Promised to span a range of dark, sociopolitical themes, the queer trio's forthcoming effort will tackle these heavy topics with a comical, pop sensibility--something that's showcased on their lead single, "Strictly Top," out today.

Complete with a colorful video, starring bearded Chicago drag queen Lucy Stoole, Absolutely Not's latest is a celebration of the city's larger-than-life LGBTQ personalities. The campy visual was shot like a "Cover Girl commercial from Mars," promoting acceptance and encouraging listeners to flaunt their inner and outer beauty however they so choose.

"You got a problem with me?" questions frontman Donnie Moore on the track's chanting chorus above spastic guitar-heavy production--a humorous declaration of Moore's sexuality, while simultaneously challenging homophobic ignorance. A dedicated player in Chicago's queer community, Moore has long been running a monthly LGBTQ rock event, called Glitter Creeps, with his sister and bandmate Madison Moore (Keys, backing vocals).
