ĠENN Share New Single

‘Mackerel’s Funky Mission’

From their ‘Liminal’ EP
out 30 March via Everything Sucks Music

‘Mackerel’s Funky Mission’ is the escapist new single from Brighton-based, transnational, genre-blending band ĠENN. With the grooving track, vocalist Leona Farrugia takes on the life of a fish in order to get away from it all and traverse the seas, with her aim specifically on her homeland Malta. She chants passionately through her mackerel mission as the song and journey unfold. 

Farrugia says of the track: “I think Mackerel’s Funky Mission is an escapism mechanism….  you sort of pretend to be someone else – in this case a fish – to escape from a current situation. It’s fun to pretend you’re something else and write from that perspective. It was also inspired by the lockdown as I wanted to be a fish just to be able to travel, and also by my love for the sea. I tried to be as visual as possible with the lyrics and the story.”

ĠENN (pronounced Jenn) will release their new EP ‘Liminal’, which features ‘Mackerel’s Funky Mission’, on 30 March via London independent Everything Sucks Music. The EP also includes the recently released single ‘Feel’, a track which has received love from CLASH, DIY, BBC 6Music, Radio X, Amazing Radio and more.
