Daily electricity to load your batteries

All proceeds of the song go to the Red Cross to help the Ukrainian people.
Stuart Murdoch (frontman/songwriter): “When the situation in Ukraine first started to happen it became clear that the lives of the people there, and probably ‘ours’ too, were never going to be the same. The band had just started rolling out tracks for our new album, and it
all felt a bit silly to be honest.
We had one track called “If They’re Shooting at You,” it’s a song about being lost, broken,
and under threat of violence. The key line is “If they’re shooting at you, kid, you must be doing something right. We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and hope that their pain and suffering can be brought to a halt as soon as possible.
We think any way in which we can get behind Ukraine—politically, culturally, practically, spiritually—it must all add up in the end. Together we have to do what it takes to help Ukraine beat this tyranny. Please consider giving to the Disasters Emergency Committee, the Red Cross, or any other humanitarian charity involved in the crisis.”

who document the armed conflict in Ukraine.
