Last week, Washington DC area alternative rock band, YellowTieGuy released “Information,” their first studio recording since 2016, saying on their website: “‘Information’, has always been intended as a commentary for doing what is right daily rather than just using social media sharing to feel good about backing causes without taking real action.” The video has intermittent quotes by various public figures encouraging individuals to speak out on behalf of racial equality, while also intentionally placing large segments of a simple black background, inspired by last week’s Blackout Tuesday which much of the music industry took part of to show solidarity with the African-American community and the protests resulting from the killing of George Floyd. You can see the lyrics and YellowTieGuy’s call to action on their website: yellowtieguy.com
