“I have tried in the past to stay away from speaking about politics, or have masked it with poetic imagery. In some respects I do the same in this song but with more anger and transparency,” says guitarist/vocalist Joshua Swain.
“Flip on the TV or scroll through Facebook and get ready to be bombarded with negativity and lies. Sometimes it seems like the more connected we become, the more disconnected we truly feel in our hearts. With the inconceivable rise of Trump, and the incessant spreading of blatant untruths through the media, it's easy to lose hope and to feel alone,” Swain adds.
The collaboration came to be when Stick Figure’s lead vocalist and guitarist Scott Woodruff mentioned to The Movement that “Dancehall” off their album Golden was his favorite tune to listen to, to clear his head before going on stage. Later on that year the two bands toured together and solidified the deal. Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer for Stick Figure, Johnny Cosmic recorded The Movement’s upcoming new album and Scott sang a verse on the new single “Siren.”
