It is a very well produced song for sure – produced by Stuart Epps. You can definitely hear the work that has gone into it.
Because of the band’s name, I was expecting a Radiohead Karma Police sound – intense and deep – which was why I was surprised to hear a relatively bright pop song.
Side by side, hand in hand,
we’ll get the word across the land
Everyone, one by one,
we won’t stop until we’re done
Though we might disagree,
we are all one family
Love and hope and unity,
that’s what makes Humanity
Humanity reminds me of a celebrity charity pop song, with melancholy, choired vocals. The message of standing together is a strong one, and perhaps would have been translated more powerfully in the form of an acoustic song.
This may give it a bit more grit and integrity; one musician, one guitar – Bob Dylan, Alanis Morissette, John Lennon kind of deal.
But, it’s certainly a song that deserves recognition and credit; it’s well-written, and well produced.
