Dead Method returns with their hotly anticipated new track «Babylon», an assertive alternative pop anthem for outcasts and outsiders searching for their tribe. Taking influence from PC Music without falling back on cliche, the track was produced by Minas who has worked with Dan Betteridge, Tierny & Local to name a few.
The track is taken from Dead Method’s upcoming debut album «Queer Genesis» , which will release in September, 2020. The album is a celebration of LGBTQ+ culture and middle finger to oppression.
They say: «’Babylon’ depicts a great exodus of queer people who have fled their home to find solace and family elsewhere. Drawing from my experience with a previous lover who was flown back to his home country when his family found out he was bisexual only to return as a ‘heterosexual’ with an arranged marriage. It was also influenced by the experiences of several of my friends who were unable to return to their home countries as they would not be safe. It’s about finding your true family and how members of the LGBTQ+ community get to pick their family despite our troubled circumstances. ‘Babylon’ is self-acceptance and finding a home outside of what society told you the concept of home is».
