Gen And The Degenerates Release New Single ‘Kids Wanna Dance’

Gen And The Degenerates are in the mood to dance on their new single, even as the world around them falls apart.

The new track is the latest cut taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Anti-Fun Propaganda’, which arrives February 23 via Marshall Records.

‘Kids Wanna Dance’ is entirely on-brand with the band’s – and indeed the forthcoming album’s – ethos of trying to have fun amid life’s challenges.

The new single follows the band’s prior tracks ‘BIG HIT SINGLE’ and ‘Famous’.

Discussing the themes of the new track, the band’s vocalist Genevieve Glynn-Reeves has said: 

“This song is about trying to reconcile the knowledge that the future of our world is very uncertain, getting up each day and trying to build a life for ourselves. Beyond that, we all want to find a way to make those lives enjoyable. 

“Not only is the quality of life getting lower, but our politics and economy are volatile; we have to ask ourselves questions like ‘Is it even ethical to have children?’ because of the state that previous generations have left the planet in. 

“It seems that if people want to spend all their time making stupid videos on TikTok or spend all their money frivolously, then why shouldn’t they?

“There are no stable careers, and they won’t be able to afford a house anyway. We all need to find the joy we can and each our way of dancing through the end times.”
