New single Requiem, from music artist EEro Seagull, is a plea to stand against the ‘Impunity’ of Police brutality against People Of BIPOC & LGBTQI Communities
Ero Seagull releases Requiem, a song she created in the aftermath of the wrongful murder of George Floyd. Requiem is the product of the collaborative work blending the rich musical style of the Greek-Canadian artist, the composition and production craft of Marilena Orfanou (Berlin Brides, S.W.I.M) and the mixing and mastering expertise of reputed producer Antonio Escobar.
Ero Seagull has developed an increasingly recognisable musical style that draws on a range of influences and genres spanning from hip-hop and pop to early post-punk. For this track, Ero went all out to build something that reflected a subject close to her heart. Her new release “Requiem” boasts the soft and rich vocals of the singer. These sets an atmospheric ambiance, complementing, in so doing, the synthesisers instrumentation. The listener can hear the influences of Enya and the lyric even allude to John Lennon, one of heroes, as well as to a title from Elton John.
The participation of producer, composer and mixer Antonio Escobar was the result of Ero winning a competition organised on the professional music hub, network and open marketplace Melboss. Melboss offered a lucky winner the opportunuty to have their track professionally mixed and mastered – “Antonio Escobar will do Mixing – Mastering to 1 track of yours”. Ero Seagull was that lucky winner.
In the song, Seagull addresses the impunity of police brutalities and declares proudly that:
“hatred should be extinct”
Before George Floyd, there were others, there was Zak Kostopoulos (Zackie oh), who was murdered in the center of Athens. Ero commands the protest but wants to push this further. wants to go further. The message is clear.
Police brutality is a global phenomenon that affects us all and needs to end.
Like the protests that followed the murders of George Floyd in the U.S. and Zak Kostopoulos in Greece, we need to unite to fight against violence.
