Vera Sola releases gloomy and stunning video for new single 'The Colony'
New York-based vocalist, poet and multi-instrumentalist Vera Sola recently released the single 'Small Minds' and now, she brings us the follow-up in the form of 'The Colony'. Both songs will appear on her debut album 'Shades', which will be released during Le Guess Who? 2018, on 9 November.
'The Colony' tells the history of white colonialism in America. She wrote the song after spending time supporting native water protectors at Standing Rock Indian Reservation. The stunning video that comes with the song embodies both the white colonist and the physicalized spirit of the stolen country and its first inhabitants.
Vera Sola will perform at Le Guess Who? 2018 together with a.o. Future Feminism, The Breeders, Lydia Lunch's Big Sexy Noise, Circuit des Yeux presents 'Reaching For Indigo: Gaia Infinitus', Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Vashti Bunyan, and many more.
