Inspired by recent senselessly violent events in Paris, San Bernadino, Brussels, Orlando, and more, all stemming from social ineptitude and a complete misunderstanding of ideologies, Hex Cougar and Jarell Perry are here with a brand new track “War & Peace.”
Throughout the track, we find singer/songwriter Jarell Perry addressing the themes of all the recent tension across the globe, something we don’t see enough of in this scene. Production wise, Hex Cougar provides a ponderous, atmospheric vibe through a variety of synths, drums, and and as well as plenty of space for Perry’s vocals.
“I’ve barely begun to process the tragedy that occurred this weekend. Mostly because I’m still facing the guilt of inwardly looking away as I scrolled through the headlines. Another shooting. Another mass killing. Another cry for help. Another hashtag #prayforOrlando. I didn’t want to hear any more.
But this wasn’t just another act of senseless gun violence. It was a targeted assault on the LGBTQ community. It was an attack on freedom of identity and expression and love. It was the manifestation of all the darkness and fear and ugliness that we breathe in every day on U.S. soil but try to sweep under the rug. Our world is ill. Our souls need healing.”
