Trans Activist Punk Evan Greer's SHE/HER/THEY/THEM Out 4/5 On Don Giovanni Records
Out April 5th on Don Giovanni Records, she/her/they/them is the new album by transgender punk activist, Evan Greer. It's Greer's first studio recording in a decade and was produced by Taina Asili and Gaetano Vaccaro. Today, you can listen to Greer's song "Last iPhone," which features Anti-Flag's Chris #2.
The songs on she/her/they/them range from indie-punk anthems about fighting fascism to bluegrassy genderqueer love ballads. The music is only one component of Greer's work, though. She's been on the frontlines of some of the most notable grassroots victories of the last decade, from defending net neutrality to helping free Chelsea Manning to to pressuring SXSW to drop a "deportation clause" from its artist contract. When she's not parenting, leading singalongs in a crowded basement, or organizing a queer dance party, Evan writes regularly for The Guardian, Washington Post, TIME, and Newsweek.
PRE-ORDER SHE/HER/THEY/THEM VIA BANDCAMP
While stylistically she/her/they/them ranges from 'multi-layered indie rock to scream-along pop punk hooks to Irish-rebel-song inspired ballads and folky queer anthems', to me, the albums strength and uniqueness is that Greer comes face to face with our political culture through her intensity and direction. In doing this, she also has the knack to caress and care for the rebel in all of us through her lyrical light-heartedness and wit.
