The anthemic, full-blooded collaboration is the latest taste of ‘Ground Control’, the London collective’s upcoming fourth studio album and the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Toast To Our Differences’.
Following recent tracks ‘Straight From The Heart’, ‘So Sorry’ and ‘Jumper’, ‘Remember Their Names’ is a kinetic track that manoeuvres through progressive synths and an energetic baseline that pays homage to the group’s explosive drum and bass beginnings.
Josh Barry’s vocals pay tribute to the Black men and women who have lost their lives at the hands of police in recent years.
“See the walls come down, see the people clеar it up/ Shards of broken hearts as police insidе are froze/ Bricks and rubble, place for trouble, try to make unrest/ Say you fight for freedom with a kevlar vest/ Will you be the ones to survive?” Barry sings on the song’s second verse.
Accompanied by a video that depicts one of the many Black Lives Matter marches that took place last year, you can watch the clip below:
