The pensive musings from Fold come together in "The Bells of the World" to make for a work of art that does what it is supposed to do: change the consumer.
Great art has the power to affect. Through the medium of sound, melody, and lyrics, this Leads-based band is making a heartfelt plea "for humanity to place life above profit."
It is a rare thing to see humans working for the good of others. Most of the music that comes my way is about artists' individual experiences. So what a treat it is to find a group of people who create with the vision to benefit others.
'Chef's kiss' is all I can say! Enjoy. And if you'd like to know more, read below:
The main spoken word hook is a quote from one of Lorraine Hansberry's favourite dramatists Sean O'Casey being narrated by Coretta Scott King during a speech concerning the interconnected issues of racism, poverty and war. The male voice throughout the track is that of EF Schumacher whose ideas for human-scale, decentralised and appropriate technologies are as revolutionary and crucial now as they were back in the early 1970s.
