Bahari said on social media “For what it’s worth, we proudly stand with the students across the country who are speaking up. Let’s all join this movement.” The posts also include links to the non-profits March for our Lives and Everytown for Gun Safety.
The band, composed of vocalist/bassist Natalia Panzarella, vocalist/keyboardist Ruby Carr, and vocalist/guitarist Sidney Sartini, recently recorded this moving rendition in support of the fast-growing youth movement for strengthened gun control in America. The video shows the girls in the studio performing the counterculture classic, mixed with a compilation of news clips from current headlines of unfortunate events and powerful quests for government action, all stemming from an immediate need for stricter gun control. The video was directed by LysaHeslov, who also directed Served Like A Girl, a 2017 documentary that reveals the complexity of female veterans’ lives and identities through a spectacle like no other, the Ms. Veteran America competition.
Known for their typically spiritually radiant, harmony-rich, melodic sound, Bahari have shifted recently from their signature youthful reflection of the coastal lifestyle to a new height of emotional cognizance and maturity with timely songs like “For What It’s Worth” and their new single “Fucked Up”.
