Seán Barna, the most recent addition to Kill Rock Stars, is a defining voice in the art of queer storytelling. From his first release, Cutter Street, an EP of notable introspection and intensity, through his newest single, “Everyone’s a Queen on Halloween”, Barna has developed an exacting, penetrative lyrical style and vocal delivery that meticulously dissects the darker corners of the queer experience.
