VENUS GRRRLS return from hiatus after lead singer GK’s recovery from Leukaemia, presenting a brand new single ‘Lidocaine’. Gritty, unfaltering, and elegant, the band make for a powerful rebirth in a new era of a chilling and unrestrained demeanour.
Speaking on Lidocaine, lead singer GK comments:
‘Lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, is used as a numbing agent during bone marrow biopsies to check for bone marrow diseases and cancers such as Leukaemia. Now in remission, I reflect on the lasting damage of cancer and begin to process the gritty and complex repercussions; including the small, seemingly insignificant factors that helped me along the way. ‘Lidocaine’ is a metaphor for this, as not only was it used as an attempt to numb my pain during a gruelling procedure, but it symbolises all attempts of this in a mental and spiritual manner, too. Getting through the day is a win in itself, even if it meant I stayed in bed all day, that was the Lidocaine I needed to get me through it.’
