Canción y disco que se tenían que publicar en la época Trump


La estadounidense EMA vuelve al ruedo musical con su tercer disco. Después de un leve cambio de registro en The Future’s Void (City Slang, 2014), Exile in the Outer Ring (City Slang, 2017), un disco que vuelve a salir en City Slang porque en palabras de la propia EMA, era demasiado político para Matador, uno de los grandes sellos independientes en el que también se publicó su anterior trabajo. Versará sobre el nihilismo y la desesperanza que azota a la zona del Oeste de EEUU en la que ella vive. Sobre ‘Aryan Nation’, su primer adelanto, bañado en distorsión y en el que vuelve a exhibir esa personalidad que le caracteriza, dice esto:

I actually wrote this song about three years ago. It was partially inspired by people I’ve known in the past and also the British film This Is England, which most people in the UK are familiar with but hardly any Americans have seen. In the movie a group of non-racist UK skinheads in the ’80s are radicalized into violence through prison, poverty, and needless war. The results are violent and tragic. When I watched it I felt like I recognized a glimmer of their hopelessness and confusion in parts of America, but I had no clue how much that would explode in 2017.

This is for my people in the middle country. I don’t look down on, or laugh at, serious issues such as poverty or drug problems. I believe your situations are real, your pain is real. I’m not here to ridicule or dismiss you. But as a person who came from heartland america, I also believe that there is another way than directing your anger at those who often have less power than you. Don’t let your discontent or your patriotism be exploited. Don’t look down, look up.
