Leeds based downtempo / trip-hop quartet Fold, led by Seth Mowshowitz, who is also a social activist, together with Josh Gardziel, Ben Walsh and Kane Rattray, are an inspired and inspiring bunch allying their talent with their social consciousness. Having already shown proof of this by conveying messages through vocal samples extracted from speeches from Martin Luther King, Kurt Vonnegut and Jimmy Carter for instance, and by donating three quarters of all their sale profits to humanitarian charities Kiva and the Tax Justice Network, they continue this engagement. Fold have just released a new single, ‘Human Again’, in support of medical aid to civilian casualties in Gaza. The single can be purchased via their bandcamp and all the money made will be donated to the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA).
In an accompanying statement, the band wrote the following:
“We do not align ourselves with political entities – we align ourselves with human beings”.
‘Human Again’ calls to be heard. Here it is.
