The music video for The Orange Apples. track ‘Naked Love’ opens with a shot of two young women and a young man, similarly dressed, all very attractive, together in a field, with their backs against a tree.

‘Disaster’, by Ultra Major, harks back to those days when all you needed was a few friends, a few chords, and an earworm of a song to have a hit.

#weneedyou2020: Women Get Out The Vote – ‘We Need You’ 

Never in the history of the USA has it been more important to vote than in this year’s presidential elections. For too long people have believed that their vote doesn’t matter, but it’s simply not the case. And to help that cause, to encourage people to vote, a group of every day American women from all walks of life, have rallied together for the cause, united in the belief that even a small group can make a big difference. The single, ‘We Need You’, by Women Get Out The Vote, is a powerful protest folk-pop song, and with any luck should prove as important and memorable as the rallying cries in the 60s and 70s.
