Killer Samantha Crain

Samantha Crain Video Highlights Police Brutality In The USA

This video was dropped into my inbox today by Samantha Crain’s PR company.  It shook me to the core.  I urge you to watch it.  It needs no narrative from me.

“Killer,” is the new video from singer-songwriter Samantha Crain.  It presents a narrative on the police brutality that is directed at people of colour, and through it, the viewer is challenged to speak up in opposition to the injustice and inequality that has been long unacknowledged, but is now validated by cell phone videos and social media.

“Killer” is a protest song that breaks open the reality of police brutality in the African-American community. “Every day we are told that progress is being made toward equality and fairness but it seems there are still widening gaps between classes, sexes, races and creeds,” Crain explains. “This song is a call for awareness…”

With lyrics like, “The killer of girls, the killer of self / Turned the Garden of Eden into a fiery hell / Struck the rock too many times now no water comes out,” it’s obvious Crain pours her heart and soul into the thought-provoking track — and the accompanying visuals help paint the picture she’s created with the song.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
