After listening to I Am Australian, I was reminded of the power of music. I was looking for an anthem for the US – but I didn’t expect to bump into a smash record so soon!
Good music comes out during hard times. ‘Welcome to the Revolution’ is an inspiring new example, with a beautiful melody and great lyrics and outstanding vocals performed by artists, Hi-Rez and Jimmy Levy.
We will not comply
With the institutions’ sick illusions
No, it won’t be televised
Welcome to the revolution…
The very sparse and documentary-style video, directed by Rachel Katz and Brandon Morin is shot on-location at multiple Washington DC monuments.
Keep the money, I would rather have my soul
They want power and control
That’s their number one goal
All my friends turn to foes
Look how easily they fold…
This spare style reminds me of the ancient and classic first music video I ever directed in 1989, for Special Ed at Profile Records (and which Vevo mastered out of sync, with the video 4 frames behind the audio, probably due to an unsupervised transfer).
Anyway, if history is any guide, we will probably be getting in a lot of great new music over the next few years.
