Partybaby’s Anthem for Post-Election Social Media Overload
Whether you are happy or sad about the election results announced last week, chances are you are still feelinâ€™ some typa way. Youâ€™ve probably seen posts about signing petitions, what you can do to make your voice heard, or maybe youâ€™ve participated in one of the protests â€” one thing is certain, everyone is stuck in a mood by whatâ€™s been going on around us in the media, social media and IRL.
We donâ€™t have a crystal ball to tell you whatâ€™s going to go down in the next four years â€” but one thing we should agree on, is to make sure we are spreading love to each other like our favorite artists and musiciansÂ are doing.Â
Punk rock band Partybaby, who is normally full of fun boppinâ€™ songs, showed us a deeper side when they released a special version of their song on Tuesday, â€œOverload,â€ which is perhaps one of the most timely, and relevant takes weâ€™ve heard on the election (and the state of the world in general).
The new version will be included in their next EP, set to release in the next few months â€” however, they did us a favor by releasing this tune early to help us cope with everything happening right now.
The lyrics are perhaps the most important thing, since lead singer Jamie Reed sings, â€œItâ€™s the overload of information thatâ€™s got me so low,â€ and a new verse that includes, â€œWe let the newsmen birth a man whoâ€™s insane,â€ and â€œI canâ€™t sleep with the kids shot dead in the streets.â€
Reminder that whatever you believe, to do it with love. Listen to the tune below.
