Debut Album Oof Bonk  Is Out September 23rd via Midnight Werewolf Records.

When they play, Allston, Massachusetts quartet Idiot Genes sound literally drunk. That’s all good in our book. Their latest track, ‘iScratch’, with it’s sporadically speeding up and slowing down tempo, generous amounts of feedback, and generally sardonic attitude calls to mind the best of 90’s American alternative rock. This is dirty, filthy, and dare I say grungy glory. The song is the latest to be released from their forthcoming debut album Oof Bonk, whatever that means.

When asked about the record, singer/guitarist Pete Hayko said, “This one’s kind of gross. Basically it’s about having an itchy butt. That’s honestly all it’s about. The only not gross thing about this song is it was written after listening to Fiona Apple a lot.”
