SAY WHEN EPK
Say When comes 4 years after the release of debut album 'Love Joints' and is the first single from forthcoming album 'The Lookout' (to be released next year on Hipdrop Records). There will be a gig to celebrate in Feb 2019, date TBC.
Say When is a love song: an apology to a partner for not paying her enough attention, for not listening. Danny G takes the first verse, full of promise and remorse. The female part of the duet is sung by French artist Osmojam who asks for action, not apologies. On a wider societal level, we heard echoes of these feelings in the Repeal movement. The Republic of Ireland was not listening to its women, and the historic referendum result in May 2018 was experienced by many as an acknowledgement of the pain caused, an apology, and a promise to do better. Both this movement and the activists involved gave us hope for the future - that our daughters could be raised in a fairer, more just society. There is still much work to be done. I hope this video serves as a small but fitting tribute to everyone involved with the cause, and a celebration of their momentous success.
This video contains footage of several high profile public marches that took place in Dublin in 2018, including Repeal the Eighth (Garden of Remembrance), I Stand With Her (Department of Justice) and the victorious count (Dublin Castle).
