Im Frühling diesen Jahres erschien die Single Higher Ground von Reach. Nun erfolgt mit The Law ein neuer Song über die teuflische Maschinerie Menschheit.
Ludvig Turner, Sänger, Gitarrist und Songwriter der Band, kommentiert dies so:
„The title of this song states the obvious subject. It’s fascinating and terrifying how we created these specific rules to streamline our behaviour towards authority and community. For the greater good? That’s the point, right? But for whose greater good? The Law is not about ”a law” but a song dedicated to the broken and corrupt states around the world. It calls to look up and see what kind of controlling systems and oppresive structures that govern us, without being written down in any book of law legally speaking, but rather is something fundamental that goes back thousands of years in human history. These are laws that are created by us, but do not belong to us and do not exist for our sake.“
Weiter sagt Turner:
„I’m the escape, salvation, the mother of lies“ was the first line that came to me. I was noodling in at home with my guitar and made this riff that just sounded evil and industrial. Sometimes I write music to a lyric or the other way around but this riff really helped me get these lyrics down.“
Die Alternative Rock Band Reach wurde schon 2012 gegründet und besteht aus Ludvig Turner, Marcus Johansson und Soufian Ma’Aoui.
