MUSIC NEWS: Gen And The Degenerates Release New Single ‘My Perfect’
Gen and the Degenerates have released their new single My Perfect, out now via Marshall Records.
“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,” explains vocalist Gen 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.”
