Out today, our favourite Brighton-based Maltese quartet are back with a banger. ĠENN’s new single ‘A Reprise (That Girl)’ is a thought-provoking, powerful, cathartic journey through the increasing pressures of continual comparison and self-measurement endemic in Western society.
What starts as a contemplative track crescendos into a rallying cry, accompanied by an impressive guitar fanfare to really get the blood pumping. ‘A Reprise (That Girl)’ has many layers – some clear from the start, others revealed over multiple listens.
“Naturally I’ve always felt like there’s a pressure to compare myself, be that through the lens of present technologies or within the creative industry. It’s something that can be very debilitating, especially to young people in a patriarchal society.”Leona Farrugia, vocalist
