Long time champion of the LBGTQ+ communinty GRiZ has teamed up with Wreckno for a Pride Month anthem you won't soon forget.

"Medusa" has the opposite effect of the beast it's named after—once it ensnares you, it's impossible not to move along to its wildly infectious groove. Catchy, hip-hop-inspired vocal verses lay perfectly over a forward-thinking production from Wreckno and veteran producer GRiZ. It's bobby midtempo rhythm encapsulates a summery and airy feeling, while still maintaining its grit and energy to keep the listener dancing.

With both producers celebrating Pride Month, the "Medusa" artwork was commissioned from non-binary, gay, Black illustrator Gabriella Grimes, whose work seeks to bring visibility to people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and gender-nonconforming people.
