She wouldn’t give it a break, crying inequality
Oh the 8th and the state, she’s never happy
Then she said I had ‘no empathy’ towards those refugees
I said that I just can’t see them as a priority
Wyvern Lingo keep on moving ahead of the pack with the release of ‘Out Of My Hands’, their most candid, politicized song to date. Karen from the band says:
“Out of My Hands” was inspired by a man I met in a pub, the night of the Home Sweet Home / Occupy Nama demonstration. He was completely cynical towards activism. I tried to get inside his head, that mistrust and negativity on the refugee crisis, homelessness in Ireland, and the Repeal the 8th movement.
As a wise old Irishman once said: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ‘Out Of My Hands’ challenges both apathy and skepticism, and asks some difficult questions about our daily engagement, both political and personal, with the world around us.
‘Out Of My Hands’ comes smokin’ hot on the trail of the stereotype challenging radio smash ‘I Love You, Sadie’, as Wyvern Lingo once again show themselves to be the sharp social commentators that you can get down and dance to.
Following their sold out gig at The Grand Social, Wyvern Lingo will play their first Dublin show of the new year on Friday 23rd February 2018 at Number Twenty Two on South Anne Street. Tickets for the gig - priced at €19.50 including booking fee - go on sale today (Friday 6th October) at midday from ticketmaster.ie
