The latest single from Lone Wild has a strong message to the American government on immigrants and refugees.

Today (February 3) marks the two year anniversary Donald Trump issued a 90-day travel ban on immigrants and refugees from certain middle-eastern countries, creating many stressful situations for families. The same ban was renewed multiple times since with different contingencies, but still limiting the number of refugees in serious need from coming in.

‘Savages’ is a political outcry to the Republican. The indie-pop themed tune goes down the path of social activism; addressing broader, more pertinent issues surrounding the plight of refugees. The firm message of the song is matched with very raw tones that encroach upon the more polished sounds the band has been known to produce so far.

Fuzzy guitars, aggressive hip-hop influenced 80’s, drums, bass lines, and drops are coupled with the anthem “We are not savages, We are all refugees.” The lyrics shed light on how modernity can cause us to forget where we come from, and in forgetting, the freedom that we can tend to demand for ourselves, we end up denying for others. Compared to the Oklahoma quartet’s previous single ‘Spitfire’, the single features heavier riffs and raw, angry vocals that pack an aggressive punch.

Lone Wild is creating bold and bombastic rock built on a foundation of greasy, infectious grooves and a classic dusting of 80’s electro-pop that captivates listeners with meaningful songwriting, pop sensibilities, and a passionate live show you don’t want to miss.
