Watch Giants Chair’s Politically-Charged Video

16 Jul, 2020

Midwestern emo vets Giants Chair are back with a new video for ‘Russian Racehorse’, a track taken from Prefabylon. This follows on from their two track EP released in June.

Of the politically-charged track and video, frontman Scott Hobart shares, “As a middle-aged, white, midwestern guy writing songs, I’ve generally left ‘protest’ lyrics of any real political or religious specificity to the professionals. What do I really have to say that isn’t already being voiced more eloquently by sharper folks? Or maybe I just didn’t have the balls. But, as the ignorance and arrogance of the Trump era woke me to new, more dangerous levels of reckless absurdity every day, I finally reached the point – maybe the obligation – that I needed to express my frustration in some way, if only for myself. I like metaphors because I think they let language do more work as they encourage more engagement on the part of the listener, so I didn’t feel the need to name names in the song. I guess it’s about politics AS religion and the frenzied futility of human beings telling themselves they have it together in the face of the unfathomable universe. Thanks for listening!”
