Eight-piece funky reggae outfit Backbeat Soundsystem are proud to reveal their new video to ‘Come Undone’, in support of their debut album‘Together Not Apart’, released late last year on Easy Star Records.
The band will be releasing a brand new video for recent album track ‘Come Undone’ in anticipation of their upcoming UK tour. The song and its video emphasise the shared responsibility in society, showcasing the group’s penchant for crafting culturally informed lyrics, as lead singer Dean Forrest explains: ‘We wanted to make something a bit darker this time, reflecting the more serious undertones of the track. The video echoes the song's cathartic journey of reaching tipping point, and then starting anew.’
Backbeat Soundsystem build upon the conscious social commentary championed by the reggae tradition, and ‘Come Undone’ addresses the mistake of inaction in the face of malevolent forces and emphasises our shared responsibility in building a better future. This philosophy of reflection and union is apparent throughout their debut album, which casts a critical eye on social inadequacy and presents the inclusive idea of community as a solution.
