Philadelphia based indie musician Brian Walker, (A Day Without Love) is releasing a second single of his upcoming LP today.
The new track is called “SES”.
This song maintains the sociopolitical undertone of his previous release, “Nonsense”, but focuses on the topic of socioeconomic privilege and inequality. The video was directed by Bob Sweeney (rlsvideo.com) and was inspired from a history of struggle in Brian Walker’s youth.
Here’s what Brian had to say about the story behind “SES”:
“During my graduate school and undergraduate years of college I was very independent, during Hurricane Sandy I stayed on different couches in my friends houses and I ate noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During that time I was exposed to the socioeconomic struggle of what it means to have to eat the same thing day in and day out because you can not afford anything else. I wrote “SES” many years later when I realized some of my peers don’t really understand how good they have it and how they could be facing financial problems in their life. I don’t think fiscal privilege is talked about in modern music and I wanted to speak about it.”
