Leicester DIY Queer Pop Sensations Kermes have streamed the latest track to be taken from their debut LP out later in 2018.

Emily Teece says of Yr Beast; “There has been so much noise made about the increased visibility of trans people in the mainstream media, and that’s great, but visibility isn’t the same as actual understanding. trans people are constantly undermined, ignored and held to impossible standards. our basic rights are an abstract plaything for politicians to throw around at will. we are mocked and judged and generally treated like shit just for having the audacity to exist. it’s a rigged game, and this song is about refusing to play along anymore… also, it’s a total bop.”

Kermes play the Y Theatre on 14th April. They debut LP ‘We Choose Pretty Names’ is out 13th April.
