MUSIC NEWS: The Oozes Release New Single ‘Ready’

Queer-punk quartet The Oozes have released their new single Ready. 

“Lyrically there is a desperate cry for support and acceptance and stresses the importance of supportive family in the reduction of suicide rates amongst trans youth,” the band explains. “It also explores the whistleblower term of ‘the trans agenda’ which, in this political climate, is being thrown about to villainise, dehumanise and alienate trans people. The chorus line ‘are you ready’ is a challenge of parenthood. There is a self-defiance that shows that the child is not the issue but rather the parents’ ignorance.

“The influence of a racing video game motif throughout aims, in musical arrangement as well as visually, to orchestrate the bravery and determination of coming out and navigating the obstacles this brings. For many this is an intense fight for survival and getting out the other side – much like the video games we know and love. The song is especially topical in a time where the TERF mentality is being widely platformed and pushed further into the mainstream and causing transphobia to be at an all-time high, socially but also in legislation being passed under a Tory government.”
