Set to release their self-titled debut album later this month, Byenary – Chuck SJ and Jodi Freer – are set on bringing trans experiences to the forefront.
Taken from the album, new single ‘Princess Give A Fuck’ races with a seething energy, as it rages against society’s preoccupation with gender norms and stereotypes. A formidable slice of queercore punk driven by an unrelenting angst-fuelled power and the fierce, visceral refrain “I’m not your fucking princess”. An absolutely essential listen right now, smashing through the confines of heteropatriarchal binaries and pushing for trans liberation, at a time when voices like these need to be heard more than ever.
Of the upcoming album, Chuck SJ asserts: “I wanted to write a record that makes trans people feel empowered. When we talk about trans issues, we tend to talk about the violence that we experience. We spend more energy educating cis people than we do creating spaces to lift each other up. We’re an incredible community capable of extraordinary things, we need more spaces where we can celebrate each other.”
Byenary, the new album, is out 28th August via Hell Hath No Fury.
