Listen :: The Blinders - Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun)
Words: Ellie Ward
The Blinders unleash their brand new track, ‘Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun’), lifted from their upcoming full-length 'Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath', which is now scheduled to be released on July 17 via Modern Sky UK.
The fiery anthem of defiance addresses the ascendance of the likes of Donald Trump, who are out to destroy the world for profit, and the guilt of the complicit societies that vote for them.
“’Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun)’ is a song that was written as a consequence of the USA's separation policy and the resulting images of children being placed in cages separate from their families," the trio comment.
"It is perhaps one of the more literal songs we've ever produced where we allowed ourselves to take the images directly from the evening news and put them straight into the song. It is, however, not just an expression of anger at the policy, the complete collapse in morality that it represents or the administration that implemented it, but is also meant to spark a question of personal responsibility – questioning whether we can do more as individuals to prevent such abuses of power and humanity.”
