Dos Floris’s New Single ‘All In It Together’ Brings Hope In The Current COVID-19 Crisis

It really feels like we’ve been in quarantine forever due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’ve had to adjust to separation and distance, everywhere in the world. Musical artists are no different, but they have a further struggle in that their very livelihood is affected because they’re unable to perform live in public. But thankfully, musicians are very resourceful, and with that comes a lot of hope as well. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Dos Floris, is determined not to let enforced separation get to her, and instead has collaborated with other musicians, as well as members of the general public. Her new single, ‘All In It Together’, sees a 40 person band come together over a video link-up, comprising independent musicians she’s met over time, as well as the public.

NOLA Resistance – ‘The Resistance Will Not Be Televised’

You’ll know the phrase, ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’, but you might not know it’s the title of a poem by Gil Scott-Heron, who published it nearly 50 years ago, in 1971. It’s one of the most famous pieces of resistance literature in the English language, and its as relevant, and fresh, today as it was back then. Inspirational to all who believe in the freedom of political expression, it has found a particular meaning for NOLA Resistance, who have been fighting the good fight for many years now. Artists, activists, and musicians, they have put their own spin on the poem, updating it – and quite rightfully so – in their latest single.

Head Fake – ‘JFK’ 

How much do you know about JFK? Were you alive, or is much of what you know second-hand knowledge, handed down to you in a rose-coloured, sanitised, approved version, which may or may not bear any resemblance to the historical man?

Sanya N’Kanta – ‘Silence Is Violence’ 

There is a horrible stain on the honour of the United States, with regard to violence against people of colour. We’ve seen this so much in recent weeks, with peaceful protests to bring about human rights changes, and to commemorate the names of those who have died at the hands of police – among many others, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Ahmaud Arbery – and to bring those murderers to justice.

Sun & Flesh – ‘Bored’

There’s a lot of aggression involved in living in Brooklyn. You all live on top of each other, and it creates a lot of hate: drivers hate pedestrians, who hate cyclists – who in turn complete the circle by hating the drivers…Sun & Flesh know that anger all too well, but they have also chosen to not let it twist them, and instead, have taken the energy from all that aggression, and risen above it, making fast and furious music, anthems of disenchantment, as it were, providing a voice for everyone. Their latest song, ‘Bored’, is the perfect example of this.

Riches Of The Poor Are Begging Us With ‘Please’

When we first heard German band Riches Of The Poor, we were struck by how much they reminded us of bands of the 80s, such as The Cure, and New Order – throw in some early U2 as well. And given they’re actually named after a line in a song by The Smiths, it’s not too hard to imagine why we got this impression.
