Motherjane Attack Corruption with New Single
Kochi-based Indian rock veterans Motherjane have just released the video for “No Contest”, their first single in a year. The song, a bristling guitar-led assault on corruption, is the band’s show of support for social crusader Anna Hazare’s campaign. According to a statement on the band’s website, “What can we say about this song except that it seems very relevant today. The song is from a society dangerously short on idealism and waking up to the fact that being ‘sophisticated’ about the situation is getting us nowhere… This song is dedicated to today’s global citizen who seeks governance that places its people right ‘up there’”.
The song and video is also the first to feature new guitarist Santhosh Chandran, who replaced longtime guitarist Baiju Dharmajan in November of last year. Chandran previously played with Motherjane’s Deepu Chandran in the pre-Motherjane band 13 AD. Motherjane plays two shows over the Independence Day Weekend – on 14 August they play alongside Pentagram at MuseRock in Bangalore and on Independence Day they are co-headliners at the Freedom Rocks festival in Ernakulam, Kerala.
