Perth's J.F.K release new single tackling homophobia - A Boy And A Boy

The five-piece's frontman details a personal account of his own experiences in a ripping tune.

Ahead of their upcoming single launch this Friday at Jack Rabbit Slim's, Perth-based garage-rockers J.F.K have unleashed a surprise single - A Boy And A Boy - that comes with a timely message as the SSM debate (ridiculously) rages on. On a purely musical front the track is an absolute belter, and we'll hand it over to frontman James Knox to give a little insight into the birth the lyrics' message: “A few months ago I was sitting in a Mexican restaurant with my boyfriend, Leighton while holding hands. After a couple bites of my beef burrito, I noticed that the mum and daughter at the table adjacent to ours were staring at us. At the time I remember wondering if I’d spilt something on my shirt, or if there was food in my teeth or something. The longer they stared, the more I began to question myself. As the pair got up to leave, they shot us the filthiest look I’ve ever seen, and at that moment I realised that homophobia was still alive and kicking.

"Love is love, and I can’t believe the fate of whether or not I’m allowed to marry the man I love is currently resting in the hands of a non-binding postal survey. I wasn’t planning on recording this track, but when I started seeing anti-gay marriage ads on TV I knew that I had to do something. I’m grateful that as an artist I’m able to give something back to the community that I love. Here’s to voting yes – hope you like the tune, it means a lot to me!"

No doubt you'll get to see it in live form this Friday at Slim's where the band are launching their latest single, Lovers, get more info on that one HERE.
