Wyvern Lingo keep on moving ahead of the pack with the release of ‘Out Of My Hands’, their most candid, politicized song to date.
The Bray band release a thought provoking video for ‘Out Of My Hands’ which was conceived by Karen Cowley and directed by Patrick Ryan. All video footage is in public domain, except for the present-day refugee footage, the March against Homelessness footage and the March for REPEAL footage, thanks to Caoimhe Butterly, Anna Cosgrave, Fauve and Charlotte Chapman and Paula Geraghty.
Karen says: “’Out of My Hands’ was inspired by a man I met in a pub, the night of the Home Sweet Home / Occupy Nama demonstration. He was completely cynical towards activism. I tried to get inside his head, that mistrust and negativity on the refugee crisis, homelessness in Ireland, and the Repeal the 8th movement..”
As a wise old Irishman once said: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ‘Out Of My Hands’ challenges both apathy and scepticism, and asks some difficult questions about our daily engagement, both political and personal, with the world around us.
‘Out Of My Hands’ comes smokin’ hot on the trail of the stereotype challenging radio smash ‘I Love You, Sadie’, as Wyvern Lingo once again show themselves to be the sharp social commentators that you can get down and dance to.
Following their sold out gig at The Grand Social in Dublin, Wyvern Lingo will play at McHugh’s Basement in Belfast on 1st March 2018. Tickets can be purchased here.
