Out today from awesome LW Fest alumnus ĠENN, ‘Rohmeresse’ takes us on a hazy post-punk multi-stop voyage, with nods to the band’s various homelands. The dreamy release accompanies the exciting news that the band will be supporting Pussy Riot on their UK tour next month! Tickets on sale HERE.
“I’ve often felt a pressure running through everyday life: a pressure to be productive whilst being true to oneself. Modern life can be very dissociative and small tasks become a real burden to uphold. I wanted to capture these thoughts through the track, whereby these emotions gradually build to a point of ecstasy.”GENN’s vocalist Leona Farrugia
The track’s title nods to French new wave director Éric Rohmer, who’s characters often struggle through the morals and desires of quotidian life.
“I wanna stay in all day, I wanna sleep in all day.”
