Gen And The Degenerates have released a Big Hit Single (literally)
Watch the video for Gen And The Degenerates’ Big Hit Single, which is a fun, tongue-in-cheek response to their label Marshall Records.
North-west punks Gen And The Degenerates have just dropped new single My Perfect, a riotous track all about the idea of forbidden love.
It's the first new music from Gen since their debut EP earlier this year, following a summer of touring and festivals, spreading vital messages about identity and positivity.
“My Perfect is a song about forbidden love, which has always been a big theme in songwriting but has historically been from a straight male narrative, especially in rock," says vocalist Genevieve Glynn-Reeves. "If we’re going to talk about real forbidden love, like the kind of love that’s in contempt of both church and state, then queer people have a lot to bring to the table.
“I was inspired by my own experiences of course, but also by conversations with one of my close friends who grew up in Poland; a very religious country where there is a lot of stigma around queerness. I wanted the lyrics to feel both intimate and dangerous.”
