ĠENN announce new EP ‘Liminal’
Set for release 30 March via Everything Sucks Music
New single 23rd March out now
Brighton-based, trans-national, genre-blenders Ġenn have announced the release of a new EP ‘Liminal’ via London independent label Everything Sucks Music (GHUM, Honey Joy, Charmpit) on 30 March 2021. Alongside the announcement comes the release of its first single ‘23rd March’.
Vocalist Leona Farrugia says “When I was writing this song’s lyrics, I was thinking about the current political situation… with Covid, Brexit, BLM… The chorus is written in the style of a Maltese expression…. In Malta, when someone is seen as ‘evil’, there’s a tendency to say that you’re gonna pray for someone’s soul since this particular person needs your prayers to be saved… Very biblical :p”
Such a fierce arrangement- from the angular and addictive hook to the abrasive beat to the far-reaching vocals exuding attitude and demanding your full attention- this track deserves to be heard!
Ġenn flawlessly captures their punk energy into their recorded work with “23rd March” showcasing this energetic force and delivering a raw and honest lyrical journey.
Ġenn (pronounced Jenn) is a musical riot, ready to rock your ears and mess with your brain. They’re serving alternative post-punk madness with a fun twist, fresh out of their DIY framework. The quartet is completed by Janelle Borg (guitar), Leanne Zammit (bass) and Sofia Rosa Cooper (drums). Together they’ve been shaking audiences to the core with their infectious tunes, and with the honest, relatable themes they attack in their tracks.
After releasing their debut album ‘Titty Monster’, the band performed across Europe and the UK; they have had the pleasure of supporting the likes of Hands Off Gretel, PINS, Acid Mothers Temple, The Orielles and Honeyblood.
2020 has already proved to be a fruitful year, with BBC Introducing The South, Tom Robinson (BBC 6Music) and Glastonbury Festival championing the band. Ġenn were also chosen as one of 30 European bands to represent Malta and the UK at the Music Europe Day 2020 online festival organised by the European Union and the publication Europavox, as well as one of the semi-finalists for the GRAMMY-endorsed, NYC-based e-festival Listen to Womxn.
