Black American People Are Scared – Passionate Noise Rockers ERIIS Share Terribly Relevant Clip For Striking Single ‘TULSA’

Clips that impress eyes and ears

10 September 2020

Last month all female ardent rockers trio ERIIS launched
their jaw-dropping debut single ‘TULSA RIOTS‘.

Turn Up The Volume wrote: “ERIIS is the new, collaborative musical project of three Belgium based passion-rock ladies, Laura Lee Schultz, Naomi Sijmons and Mirabelle Van
De Put.
Their mantra is Chaos, Strife And Discord, their sound is as monumental as the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris (before the fire) and their debut single is nothing less than awesome.”

The tremendously affecting song is about the shocking Tulsa Race Riots that occurred
in 1921 in Oklahoma City where thousands of black people were molested by white trash racists.

A story told from the perspective of a resident who sheltered a black family during the massacre. “They were cold and desolate, I saw them bathe in blood, bathe in blood blisters. Nowhere to go I gave them bread and sheets to rest. Praying on their beds.”

The band just shared a breathtaking clip, terribly relevant again today. Contrary to
what that hate-preaching monkey in the White House says we all know that there’s
a deep-rooted racism in the Divided States of America from the very day that country
was founded.

Black People in America are scared today” said basketball star Lebron James recently.
It’s fucking 2020 and coward killings of black people still happen. DISGUSTING!

Watch the clip right here. The visuals speak for themselves, loud and clear…

Five Fervent Firecrackers – STAY ON TRACK IN THE WEEKEND…

14 August / 16 August 2020…

Five new firecrackers to boost your weekend…

1. ‘She Loved You’ by MARK LANEGAN remixed by IYEARA (US/UK)
A ritual voodoo-like disco dance. Pitchy synth beats for the twilight hours. On
21st August the full remix album of Mark Lanegan‘s 11th LP  Somebody’s Knocking
by British electro duo Iyeara comes out, re-titled ‘Another Knock At The Door‘.


2.’Tulsa’
by ERIIS (Belgium)
This fresh passion-rock trio’s mantra is Chaos, Strife And Discord. Their sound is as monumental as the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris and this debut single is nothing
less than awesome. A terrific reflection on the Tulsa Race Riots that occurred in 1921.

3. ‘Prism’ by BULLY (Nashville, Tennessee)
Vehement and electrical power-pop slam with a “happy go lucky/fuck-it-all attitude
and ardent vocals by Alicia Bognanno. Third album SUGAREGG arrives next week.

4. ‘The Greyhound’ by TRAAMS (Chicester, UK)
British post-punk trio back after four years to do what they do best. Taking the listener
on an ongoing riff-tastic trance trip with an instant mind-boggling impact. Impressive!
The first of a trio of new pieces coming our way over the next few months.

5. ‘Baby Let’s Make It Real’ by EELS (UK)
The beautiful freak is back with a vintage Eels humdinger. Reflective, wistful, strangely catchy and deadpan lines like “Baby, you’re a full meal, the way you make me feel/ It’s
kind of a big deal/ Baby, let’s make it real.”
Welcome back Mark Oliver Everett.

See/hear you next week, music junkies…

Chaos, Strife And Discord – Here’s Debut Single’ TULSA’ By Passion-Rock Trio ERIIS

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

8 August 2020

ERIIS is the new, collaborative musical project of three Belgium based passion-rock amazones, Laura Lee Schultz, Naomi Sijmons and Mirabelle Van De Put. Their mantra is Chaos, Strife And Discord, their sound is as monumental as the cathedral of Notre-Dame
de Paris
(before the fire) and their debut single is nothing less than awesome.

TULSA is a stunning piece of passion-rock about the Tulsa Race Riots that occurred in 1921. A most gripping story told from the perspective of a resident who shelters a black family during the massacre. “They were cold and desolate, I saw them bathe in blood, bathe
in blood blisters. Nowhere to go I gave them bread and sheets to rest. Praying on their beds.”

Woke up to news of fire
Greenwood families burning to the ground
He said to play it cool
Although the planes are gone
They need someone to hang onto

Tulsa, Oklahoma
Tulsa, Oklahoma
Tulsa, Oklahoma

Sonically TULSA resonates like a boiling volcano that can explode any second. You actually can feel physically the pain, anger, frustration, and outrage every time the song’s intensity peaks, making scream buoy Courtney Love sound like a choir girl.

The alternating, emotional voices and melodious harmonies are touching, the clamorous outbursts are both titanic and heartbreaking. Chaos, strife and discord, indeed. This blistering turbo challenges the burning heatwave we experience these days.
