Percy Black: Code Name Covid-19

Music can be inspired by the best and the worst of human experience. It can uplift us or drag us down. In this release, UK-based Percy Black takes the coronavirus pandemic as his inspiration and produces a thoughtful song about the current problems we face. He says that he “writes and sings educative music, identifying societal problems and trying to provide a solution where possible. Grew up listening to struggle music from legendary artists like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. Currently inspired by societal issues affecting the world at large. This makes my music therapeutic to listen to, especially as the world battles the different and difficult problems experienced every day.” This track is a slow, even languid, piece of music, and the most striking aspect is the contrast between the image conjured up of Caribbean beaches and the harsh reality of the song’s subject matter. Much more educative than a Prime Ministerial press conference
