GENN Release Fantastic New Bop ‘Catalyst’

Alt-group GENN have recently shared their fantastic new single they have titled “Catalyst.” The track is now available to stream everywhere via all major streaming platforms!

“Catalyst” is the first single the Brighton-based band have released since the success of their most recent EP “Liminal” – which features six incredibly addictive songs that you just can’t help blasting at full volume on your speakers. This single in particular is filled to the brim with insane, electric guitar riffs, as well as strong vocals and powerful lyrics. Through the power of music, the band are expressing their need to implement change in wake of the political events of the past twelve months. Listeners will experience an eye-opening revelation upon hearing their message.

When talking about the track, lead vocalist of GENN, Leona Farrugia explains;

The word ‘revolution’ has often been used in more grand ways throughout collective history, but ‘Catalyst’ started as more of a personal rediscovery, realising that everyday is a ‘work in progress’ in order to wake up from the coma of tradition. n previous years, I understood the importance of moving forwards, doing my best to cast off the shackles of the past. In this sense, the song acts as a way to remember that change starts from within.”

GENN is a highly unique group that are unlike any other. Consisting of Leona Farrugia (Vocals), Janelle Borg (guitar), Leanne Zammit (bass) and Sofia Rosa Cooper (drums), the four add that little something extra to the music scene. Whilst their genre can be described as pop-punk, they experiment with a blend of different genres in order to create their own signature sound. It’s a sort of wonderfully brilliant chaos that we all need in our lives.
