The Birth of a Nation

by Enola Gay

Irish post-punk quartet formed late 2019. Ranting vocals and a bed of reverb-soaked, buzz-saw guitar layered on top of a driving rhythm that draws inspiration from electronica. The Birth of a Nation addresses systematic oppression and how racism still spreads in the streets of Belfast. CHECK YOUTUBE.
