Featuring Michael Gira...
Cold Specks

Recent events in the United States have made headlines around the world.

The country is again confronting its attitudes towards race, following a series of harrowing incidents.

Cold Specks is not immune from their impact. New track 'A Season Of Doubt' focusses on these events, and the emotional devastation they have left in their wake.

Swans' Michael Gira contributes, with the whole piece having a devastating emotional insight. Cold Specks:

"I was in America when the Ferguson grand jury decision was announced. I was there again when it was announced the police officer who placed Eric Garner into a fatal chokehold would not be indicted. I felt an overwhelming sense of sadness. I just kept thinking of my baby brother. My brother is 12 years old. The same age as Tamir Rice, the child who was shot and killed as he carried his toy gun. It could've been him."

"I shouldn't have to remember the first time I was called a nigger as vividly as my first kiss. I shouldn't have to experience and witness the burden of being black in 2015. It shouldn't have to be this painful."
