Ellen and the Degenerates

Ellen and the Degenerates cut loose new single "Going on a Trip", perform at Elsewhere on 06.17

The blistering single “Going on a Trip” acts as a thesis statement for Ellen and the Degenerates. Dizzying riffs and hyperactive snares propel the song forward without a sense of direction and without care. It’s a low-fi and gnarly punk journey describing a road-trip gone wrong when an exit is missed and a fight breaks out between driver and passenger. It’s a non-stop barrage of energy that weaves between angst and rage as its modes of discourse. While the band promotes itself as “teen angst” and “pop punk”, it would be foolish to diminish their ferocity to something as quaint as teen angst. “Going on a Trip” is a twisted punk song that ends with heavy breathing, mirroring what every listener feels after first experiencing their music. Ellen and the Degenerates will be performing their hellish brand of modded punk at Elsewhere on June 17. You can stream their 2017 Herb Alert EP below. -Tucker Pennington


Ellen and the Degenerates plays Bushwick Public House 07.01

Brooklyn punk quintet Ellen and the Degenerates will play at Bushwick Public House on July 1st in support of Remnants. On their most recent single, "My House," the Degenerates tap into the high-energy, anthemic sensibilities of '70s punk with a catchy but appropriately defiant hook ("This is my house/You need to get out"), and a driving rhythm section that brings the song to a screeching halt at just under two minutes. - Ethan Ames, photo by Jeanette D Moses
