Gena Perala has returned with the release of a new visual for her latest single “I WILL NEVER KNOW”. With a voice that is warm and compelling, Perala creates a style all her own – soft yet strong.
“The song is not just about a relationship, or lack there of, but about the idea or feeling when you want something so bad but that something might not want you back. The bridge of the song is also a commentary on how we use technology to speak and connect with each other these days, losing the nuances of voice and eye contact which has led, I believe to an epidemic loss of empathy,” Perala explains. The chorus of the song is a about laying it all on the line, “guts exploding,” and the coloured smoke bombs, fireworks and sparklers in the visual represent that aspect, “all my guts splattered on the table,” Perala says, shedding light on some of the imagery in the video.

Perala’s upcoming releases will feature more of this electronic sound without straying too far away from her singer songwriter, lyrical roots: “Going into the studio I had very specific ideas of what I wanted and co-produced the songs with Chris Gestrin, he was the perfect person for this project since his studio is literally packed with synths and drum machines.”
