After an extremely difficult week of soul searching and heated debate on-and-off the field, Horrorshow reveal ‘Any Other Name’ featuring Jimblah, Thelma Plum and Urthboy, written and recorded over the weekend as a rallying cry to the nation. It calls for honesty and it calls for self-reflection.
Nick Bryant-Smith a.k.a Solo from Horrorshow explains, “The first step towards resolving any problem is being able to acknowledge that you have one. This song is a response to the intense and inescapable debates swirling around the nation right now and the darker truths this whole episode chips away at the surface of to reveal in full.
In a time where so many feel compelled to broadcast their opinions via social media and newspaper column inches, what comes naturally to us is to use the medium of music to help us make sense of it all and articulate our response. Our friends Jimblah, Thelma and Urthboy got on board with amazing contributions to help us pull the song together over the last few days. We hope you like it but above that we hope it might inspire us all to take a long hard look at ourselves and the country we live in.”
Jimblah adds, “There is an extremely powerful movement happening in this country right now and we need to ensure that we empower and get behind those whom are courageous enough to lead it in the direction it needs to go.”
Urthboy summarises, “There’s a movement from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders around the phrase “Nothing about us, without us”. It’s about time we non-Indigenous people actually listened.”
