Brighton quartet, As It Is, have announced the release of their new album, The Great Depression, (out August 10th on Fearless Records) with new single, "The Wounded World".
Speaking of the track and the accompanying video, frontman Patty Walters says, "The Wounded World’ is a commentary on the polarised and volatile modern reality, which we’ve allowed. The video depicts a not-so-distant dystopia, where present-day headlines and technologies are displayed in exhibits as the warning signs of an impending disaster. I feel that we as a society have embodied a destructive habit of talking without listening, surrounding ourselves with alternative facts and headlines, totally void of open-mindedness or empathy. Despite the labels and beliefs that all too often divide us, we are one people, and we’re all to blame.”
