Protest songs are a dime a dozen these days. For good reason. This one by Austin’s The Bright Light Social Hour is leading the pack.
Of “Tear Down That Wall”, Bright Light guitarist and vocalist Curtis Roush says:
“The incoming president is a divider of Americans along lines of race, gender, class, and nationality. With his proposed wall, he seeks to separate us from our neighbors and close us off from integrating further with our human family abroad. We all have ways both psychic and material through which we can resist this division in our everyday lives. As a band, we will use our voices and sounds to keep pushing for love, justice, and cosmic perspective.”
Be sure to turn this one up to 11. It just sounds better that way.
