Ahead of the inauguration of a new world leader in the United States, Swedish goth rock and post-punk band Then Comes Silence has released the music video for “In Your Name”. Along with the premiere, Then Comes Silence’s frontman Alex Svenson reflects on the despotic era of international politics that is hopefully coming to a close:
“The world needs a deep and profound detoxing.
Despotes and populists are poisoning and twisting every word to their advantage.
Disharmony, lockdowns, and restrictions are playing tricks on our heads.
Divisive attitudes divide. Calling the other side idiots will only make it worse. It won’t change people’s minds.
Let’s not only hope for it; let’s work for a better new year.”
