It’s been some time since the 2018 release of ‘Odyssey: The Founder of Dreams’- the second studio album from the UK-based alternative/progressive rock outfit VOICES FROM THE FUSELAGE. Even so, Ashe O’Hara and the band have returned with a gorgeously re-imagined, orchestral variant of album track ‘Domus’.
Arranged and mixed by Voices From The Fuselage drummer Scott Lockhart during the UK’s lockdown period, the idea for the rearrangement of ‘Domus’ came out of “the need to make a difference to the current state of systemic oppression around the world that has really been highlighted by the current events in the US”. The accompanying listening video for ‘Domus’ premiered on Prog Magazine’s website on the eve of the track’s release.
In the wake of recent events, the world has united in a show of strength and solidarity towards communities faced with discrimination. This of course has included many bands and artists of the music industry, who have stepped forward to release music in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. With the re-imagined ‘Domus’, Voices From The Fuselage join the ever-growing choir of voices speaking out against racism and discrimination.
“George Floyd was one of many who face horrific racism at the hands of those trusted to protect”, comments Lockhart. “It’s not enough anymore to sit back and say “I’m not racist”, we all need to be actively “Anti-racist” and call out intolerance where ever we see it.”
