Blackout Problems release new single ‘LADY EARTH’

Blackout Problems have released their brand new single ‘LADY EARTH’, taken from the forthcoming album DARK out January 15th via Sony Music/Music For Nations. The album is available for pre-order here.
 
‘LADY EARTH’ is an energetic and raw cut, shining a bright spotlight on the band’s ability to flow from delicate synth-led calm to intense guitar-driven power at the drop of a pin. Serene and prayerful moments swell into fervent distorted soundscapes as the band pick apart systems of belief and faith, searching for somewhere they can place their own.
 
“Seeing Greta Thunberg on the news gave me a strange feeling,” frontman and guitarist Mario Radetzky begins about the inspiration for the song, “I was reminded of how I was when I was sixteen and I felt like I was light-years away from what teens are capable of doing these days.
 
“It wasn’t like I wasn’t interested in what was going on back then, it was more like I wouldn’t have thought we could be the kids who make a difference and open some eyes. Sitting in school being taught by the books that made and changed history, you sometimes tend to forget the here and now. History is made all around us, right now, and we shouldn’t wait to participate. No one is too small to make a difference.”
 
‘LADY EARTH’ follows the release of the upbeat and energetic ‘BROTHER’, the pensive and pulsing ‘DARK’ and the emotionally-charged anthem ‘MURDERER’, all taken from the upcoming album, which reflects the band’s response to some of the alarming headlines of recent years, including the resurgence of right-wing forces and the worldwide triumph of populism.
