Ġenn (pronounced Jenn) is a musical riot, ready to rock your ears and mess with your brain. They’re serving alternative post-punk madness with a fun twist, fresh out of their DIY framework. Based in Brighton, the band is a result of a trans-national pairing which came about through the internet.
Leona Farrugia (vocals), Janelle Borg (guitar), Leanne Zammit (bass) and Sofia Rosa Cooper (drums) have been shaking audiences to the core with their infectious tunes, and with the honest, relatable themes they attack in their tracks.
After releasing their debut album ‘Titty Monster’ in 2018, the ladies performed across Europe and the UK, and were featured on KEXP, DIVA Magazine, Europavox, Tom Tom Magazine, and Louder Than War, amongst others. The band have also had the pleasure to support excellent acts including Hands Off Gretel, PINS, Acid Mothers Temple, The Orielles and Honeyblood.
‘These girls most certainly mean business with their attitude ridden, energetic drive and uncompromising approach. Riot Grrrl’s give us what you got!!’ (Louder than War)
From touring to new releases always lined up, you will want to keep your eyes peeled for these girls from here on out. So hold on tight, because the Ġennata (English translation: craziness) has just begun.
