Stop Resisting! – Woke – Audio

The US alt-hop duo Stop Resisting! released the LP Symbiotic on the 30th of November.

Stop Resisting!

Stop Resisting!

The name of the duo gives a clue as to the nature of their material which directly confronts state sanctioned injustices and social divisions which are endemic in much of the world.

Rather than taking a grenade to the party, Stop Resisting! create music which quietly reaches out an arm to all, in a call to resistance against the system rather than the irrelevance of what the 1% direct are those at fault, in a cohesion of electronica, guitar and harmonised vocal.

The antepenultimate of the seven tracks is Woke.
