Gen and The Degenerates

Ever since Genevieve Glynn-Reeves was a child, she had an overwhelming awareness of how difficult it is to just be a human. There’s infinite possibility, after all, in this life for disaster, tragedy and misfortune. Switch on the news, and it’s all there in front of you – war, crime, climate change, economic upheaval, more than enough to make you think that to be alive is to constantly struggle.
What do you do, then, when it feels like the world is crumbling around you? For Gen and the Degenerates, the answer is to have fun. “I don’t want to shy away from the darkness of being a human,” explains Gen (whose pronouns are she/they). “But by that merit, I don’t want to be fully consumed by it and forget to have fun and be silly and make light of it. I think it’s really important to have these difficult conversations with a sense of lightness and humour.”
“A lot of people do need that spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down,” adds guitarist Sean Healand-Sloan (pronouns he/they). “I think a lot of the best art comes from that line of humour and pathos and darkness and colour all at the same time. If we were to summarise the album in a couple of words, it would be ‘worried fun’.
