UK Drones have shared another banger where they let hell loose called “Live & Let Live.” This time, it’s a social commentary on the pre-ingrained biases we develop toward certain physical attributes. Slashing the rock canvass with industrial elements and punk attitude, “Live & Let Live” is a smashing joyride:
“‘Live & Let Live’ is for anyone who has ever felt trapped in their own skin,” shared Drones vocalist Lois McDougall. “We’re all born with unique bodies. We don’t have a say in what they’re going to look like, yet for some reason, we’ve built a society where we’re judged based on our appearance – The colour of our skin, our height, our hair colour, our sex, our body shape. Try to see past what’s been drilled into you by people’s contrived views. We have to actively work to fight those deeply ingrained preconceptions because we are all unique, and most of us have felt the damage of unfounded opinion in some way.”
The track is from their upcoming album Our Hell Is Right Here, which will be out this Friday via Thousand Island Records (North America) and Lockjaw Records (UK).
