MORAN MAGAL: Album "Under your Bed" & New Video.

Added 01 September 2019, 11:10 AM

“There’s no music on a dead planet.” This quote from Moran Magal’s drummer Marcos Feminella has been on my mind since I first got in touch with it this week – that's also a reason why you get this e-mail from me and not from Sonja today. Certainly, with Moran Magal’s album release of Under Your Bed today, there is a huge reason to celebrate, but we should never lose sight of the other very essential things. This is also what the band addresses with their simultaneously released video for Take Your Money, which, among others, deals with the sad current events in the Amazon rainforest. It would of course be much more comfortable to just talk about music to you, but if it’s for the planet, we are always ready to step out of our comfort zone. And that should be the approach for all of us. Everyone is talking about a better future but it can only get better when every single person feels obliged and is willing to compromise.

“And we sit down, how blind can we be, when all the trees are gone, so are we, so are we”

At this point, everyone should read these lines with heartache. But the fact that issues like the one we are talking about here even exist, implies that there are not enough people caring – about our future, about our planet. No, it’s not our planet. We must stop acting like we own nature. There is no Plan(et) B. Moran and her band had to realize that with everything happening in the world nowadays, their song Take Your Money now sadly seems as relevant as it can be. Let’s let the artists speak for themselves:

“Nina Simone once said that as an artist, you must reflect the time you are living in and use it in your art. We live in times where money, power and greed are destroying nature maybe more than ever before. TAKE YOUR MONEY is about the destruction of the planet, animal abuse and ignoring what is coming if we continue treating nature like garbage. It’s the least gothic or metal song on the new album and could be classified more as folk rock, but TAKE YOUR MONEY is all about the message. This song, written and composed by Moran Magal herself, is featuring the vegan group activists and drum ensemble Drums over Knives established by Moran Magal's Brazilian drummer Marcos Feminella, who also arranged the drums for this song. Marcos Feminella and Ishay Sommer (bass) are both, among others, members of Drums over Knives. As a group, they often demonstrate around Germany for a better future.“

Drummer Marcos Feminella adds:

“We saw a great opportunity for a collaboration between Drums over Knives and Moran Magal – bands in which Ishay Sommer and I are both members in. TAKE YOUR MONEY is about the atrocities that humans are inflicting on Earth and its preservation and that's closely related to Animal Liberation. We worked on some cool DoK grooves and solos and managed to fit them to the song. We really liked the result! There's no music on a dead planet.”
