Release Info/credits
Red Eye cover raw social, emotional and political issues, based on the foundation that every song should carry a message.
Red Eye is centred on the music and lyrics of Trevor Perfect and features guest vocalists. Trevor plays all the instruments, slowly building up tracks and adding each instrument, layer by layer, until the song is complete.
Red Eye aim to address the lack of protest songs that exists today, compared with the rich tapestry of protest songs and singers of the past.
This song is about how its becoming tough times with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. Many people, young people in particular, are suffering from low wages (which fail to keep up with inflation), are unable to buy a house, have to pay further education/university fees, and are suffering from zero hour contracts and the gig economy. So it was young people, in particular, that I had in mind when I wrote the song.
Whilst I don’t advocate violence, actual physical protests can, and have, achieve change and influence events. We are now in times when positive change is becoming more and more necessary. Especially as voting fails to result in any realistic or significant change in many parts of the world.
