Gio John Teases 'Grindr Boi', A Raucous Anthem for the Modern Gay Dating Scene

Get ready to add a new anthem to your Pride Month playlist, because Gio John is set to drop his latest single, ‘Grindr Boi’, on June 28th. The track promises a raw and unflinching look at the ups and downs of gay dating in the digital age, all wrapped up in Gio's signature blend of social media pop and skater punk.

For those unfamiliar with Gio John, he's an emerging artist with a unique style, making waves with his stunning fusion of genres. With influences ranging from Blink-182 to Paramore, Gio's music is a love letter to the LGBT and Asian communities, delivered with punk rock energy and undeniable authenticity. His previous releases, like ‘Yours’ and ‘Str8’, have earned him spots on Spotify's "New Music Friday Philippines" and a dedicated following among those seeking representation in the punk scene.

In perfect form, ‘Grindr Boi’ is set to be Gio's most impactful release yet. It dives headfirst into the world of Grindr, the ubiquitous dating app that's become both a blessing and a curse for many gay men. The song doesn't shy away from the realities of hookup culture, exploring the highs and lows, the connections and the disappointments, with a candidness that's both refreshing and relatable.

But ‘Grindr Boi’ isn't going to be just a song – it's set to be a social statement, with all proceeds from the track donated to Twenty10, an organisation supporting LGBTQIA+ youth. This release, coinciding with the final weekend of Pride Month, is a powerful testament to Gio's commitment to using his platform for good.

Musically, ‘Grindr Boi’ draws inspiration from the punk rock energy of The All-American Rejects' ‘Dirty Little Secret’, while lyrically, it channels the relatable storytelling of Sabrina Carpenter's ‘Espresso’. It's a track that promises to get stuck in your head and spark conversations about the complexities of modern love.

To make sure you don't miss out on this exciting release, you can pre-save ‘Grindr Boi’ now ahead of its release on all streaming platforms on June 28th. Get ready to turn up the volume and let Gio John's music be the soundtrack to your Pride celebrations.
