Brooklyn, NY’s Locations has released a brand new music video for their latest single “Trickle.” The new single will be featured on the band’s sophomore EP, Stop the Money, which will be released on October 18th. Produced by Nelson Antonio Hernandez-Espinal of STUY (formerly Stuyedeyed) and mixed by Matt Bayles, who’s worked with bands like Minus the Bear, Botcha and Mastodon, the EP is a message to the working class across the political spectrum that the time to take action is now.
The duo, consisting of guitarist/vocalist Niko Rummell and drummer/vocalist Thomas Whidden, are both Teamsters Local 817 Location Scouts for film and TV. They were part of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes going on across the TV and movie industries. Their primary objective, above all else, has in recent years become fierce advocacy for the little guy. Universal healthcare, opposition to banks funding new fossil fuel companies, combating political corruption and defending democracy are some of the causes they’ve spoken for.
Locations had the following to say about the new single:
“The song is about corporate greed, capitalism, class solidarity, and taxing the rich. Over the last several decades, there has been a massive transfer of wealth from the working class to the richest of the rich. We’re not talking about doctors and lawyers-rich, we believe working people deserve to make a fair living. We’re talking about the parasitic ultra-wealthy, who are hoarding more wealth than they could ever possibly spend.”
