Today EEDB releases their new video Isolation. The single will be released on 22nd June 2020. The song strongly suggests that Isolation is counterproductive to the human condition and not the best way to fight COVID-19. It at least suggests that the price of isolation is too high in fighting any virus that in essence cannot be cured.
Written and produced by Stevie Eagle E and Peter Doc B the song is a compelling R&B soul with Trap expression of pain and angst caused by Isolation. Be warned this track does contain some expressive and strong lyrics that may not be for everyone. There are not copious amounts of cursing in the track, but it has one or two strong expressions of pain that are relevant and poignant. If you listen to this song you cannot help but start to sing along to it. The lyrics are powerful, the message is in your face, Isolation is not good for the human condition.
The video takes the song to another level as it is peppered with quotes that debunk isolation from famous scholars, celebrities and writers as well as quotes from news sources. The video also suggests that isolation has a greater effect on the black population causing more poverty, pain and mental anguish and pushing the Black Lives Matter message which is obvious from the intro with the sound of someone struggling to breathe.
In a simple statement to Global News Ink Stevie Eagle E said:
I have nothing to really say about the track Isolation as the lyrics and video speak for themselves. If anyone wants to know what we feel, that is me and Doc B they need to listen to the song or watch the video. It’s all there.
You can pre-order isolation on Spotify here. or wait until the 22nd of June to start streaming this powerful and compelling song. You can also watch the video above. you can also visit their website EEDB-Music for more information.
This is the first song of its type that we have heard thus far. Most songs dealing with COVID-19 or isolation tend to take a slightly different stance or vibe towards the whole thing. EEDB have gone right to the bones of isolation and there are no fun and games here. It’s real, raw and heartfelt. It may well have its detractors in its message, but it puts up a compelling argument and question that I feel we all need to consider. Is isolation for everyone the best way to deal with things like coronavirus?
