SAHRA and Muse make some noise in this week’s playlist roundup.
SAHRA – “Sorry”
Muse – “Will of the People”
One rock band doing the most to prove their stratospheric range is Muse, who have just dropped their new single “Will of the People” – the third song of their forthcoming album of the same name. Building a chest pounding intensity with its gritty guitar strings and unwavering base, the track commands a sense of societal uproar — bringing into question whether the people really have “will”. On the tracks music video, Matt Bellamy says, “‘Will of the People’ is fictional story set in a fictional metaverse on a fictional planet ruled by a fictional authoritarian state run by a fictional algorithm manifested by a fictional data centre running a fictional bank printing a fictional currency controlling a fictional population occupying a fictional city containing a fictional apartment where a fictional man woke up one day and thought ‘fuck this.’”
