GURU have released their new single, ‘Roses’.
Out now via Permanent Creeps, it’s a song about having to play an unfair game, and trying to push for change.
Frontman Tommy Cherrill explains: “Roses is about the uphill struggle of trying to get anything done when you’re at the bottom of the pecking order, whilst simultaneously knowing you don’t want to be anything like the people at the top. It’s about playing the game even though you don’t want to, levelling with yourself that every step you take closer to success, can potentially cause you to become less like the change you want to see.
“I thought this was best exemplified by the gifting of a rose, which can be seen as both a gesture of gratitude, and of buttering someone up. I guess now is a better time than ever to put this out – with leaders, landlords, employers etc all showing a remarkable lack of empathy to the everyday lives and wellbeing of those less fortunate. It shouldn’t be necessary that people in the most vulnerable of positions have to work the hardest to enact compassionate change which should come from the top.”
Give it a listen below.
