Nothing Valentine – Civil Unrest

Nothing Valentine is the latest project by Darrin Lewis who during the latter part of 2019 released the first single “#GothGirl“. Where the first single leaned towards a blend of industrial and pop Civil Unrest takes a que from Lewis`previous band Beside The Silence with more of a metal edge to it while still retatining its identity as its own seperate being.

The single begins with samples of the cheeto man himself, President Trump talking about employing the national guard in order to control the protests which have been going on for about a month now after the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other people of colour.

With the slithering tounge of a an angered Serpent Lewis`sings of the injustice of recent events and while there are surely an ocean of songs with similar topics it all hits a little differently when you know that this is happening right now and your friends being affected by it or even killed for standing up for their right to live and be free.

I hope to see more artists use their platform to bring attention to these issues, to use their chance to immortalize facts within their art, facts which will surely be twisted into something the ruling elite will be more comfortable with including in future historical books.

The single is available on all major streaming platforms and proceeds will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund
