Releasing on BBE Music as Mega Jawns, Will Sumsuch and Will Brock have been making music together since 2013, when they joined forces for the first ever release on Colour and Pitch, 'Simpatico'.
'Humanity' is perhaps their most heartfelt and accomplished work yet. Framed by Sumsuch's warm production and lyrical lead guitar, Will Brock's words and powerful delivery are a clarion cry for forgiveness, tenderness and togetherness in these times of great division.
The song came together quickly after a conversation between the two friends, discussing racial and political divisions in both the USA and UK. "So many of us cling to ideas and identities handed to us by whichever society we happen to be born into" says Sumsuch. "Will and I were talking about how people have become so attached to stances and beliefs that hurt themselves and others. I'd been feeling a lot of sadness about this when I was composing the instrumental, which I'd sent him just before our call. About two hours after we spoke, he sent back the finished song. My jaw hit the floor when I heard the words he'd written."
"Feel the beat of every human soul" sings Brock. "Love with all your heart and then some more".
Heed the call. Don't let hate use you. Use your Humanity.
