Song Of The Day! Enola Gay ‘The Birth Of A Nation’ : Debut single is razor sharp and sledgehammer crushing.

Enola Gay

In commemorating the best and worst that have been highlighted through the final straw death of George Floyd, Enola Gay amps up their cause for better treatment and equality, through the invigorating punk thrust of their single ‘The Birth Of A Nation’. Judo flip of the 1915 Ku Klux Klan’s propaganda movie of the same name, the single broadens the burdens of hate and oppression through the eyes and ears of a world that has woken up to a sift through the darkness. In turn, making it into a new positive.

The Belfast, Northern Ireland based post-punk/noise rock 4 piece formed in late 2019, emboldens their message through their witness of their own streets of Belfast to connect humans to humans, in the hopes of communicating support and of unity.

“We can no longer allow racism and police brutality to exist and flourish ANYWHERE in 2020,” said Enola Gay. “RACIST SCUMBAGS are crawling out from under rocks all over social media to make themselves heard. It’s not enough to just not be racist but we must hold each other accountable.”

Added the band: “This session made at home, wasn’t meant to be our first release seeing as we hadn’t planned on releasing music until after lockdown but 2 weeks ago we wrote our reaction to the current events and we couldn’t stay silent.”

Word.

Reminding the best traditions of Rage Against The Machine in its essence, socially political vocals and a bed of reverb soaked buzz-saw guitar layered on top of a driving rhythm draw inspiration as much from left-field electronica as it does from post punk heroes of the late 70s / early 80s.

‘The Birth Of A Nation’ is razor sharp and sledgehammer crushing.

Debut single and music video for The Birth of a Nation out now over at our Facebook page, link in bio. We can no longer allow racism and police brutality to exist and flourish ANYWHERE in 2020. RACIST SCUMBAGS are crawling out from under rocks all over social media to make themselves heard. It’s not enough to just not be racist but we must hold each other accountable. Ideally, this session made at home, wasn't meant to be our first release seeing as we hadn’t planned on releasing music until after lockdown but 2 weeks ago we wrote our reaction to the current events and we couldn’t stay silent. We must be louder. We cannot stay silent. #punk #protest #protests #postpunk #noiserock #makeracistsafraidagain
