Rubberbandits have released their brand new single and it’s garnering widespread applause online. ‘Sonny’ explores the topic of mental health and suicide. The Limerick duo have been raising awareness of the importance of mental health and it’s current state in their homeland for many years.
The lyrics are powerful, poignant & catchy in equal measures. Hard hitting lines such as “He never lied to his children they’re better off if he leaves because what he has is a problem not a fucking disease” hang in the memory. “Sonny Oh Sonny don’t go hanging yourself” as a chorus would be risky for any musician but with Blindboy Boatclub and Mr.Chrome it just fits, and works.
great video & great topic biaaazzzz.
Should be the HSE's mental illness department theme song
