Published Jul 31, 2014As Elephant Stone gear up for their album The Three Poisons, the Montreal psych group have already shared their bass-driven rocker "Knock You from Yr Mountain." Now, they've given that psychedelic track a lyrics video.
The clip places the lyrics atop politically charged vintage footage of activism, propaganda and war. Frontman Rishi Dhir released their following statement about "Knock You from Yr Mountain":
The song pretty much says what needs to be said. I look at the present state of the world; and it breaks my heart. I don't understand how the leaders of the world see corruption, murder, war, and deceit as a way to lead their people. They do not represent us, they seek to control us. We need a change. Will all the craziness happening in the world right, we felt it was an appropriate time to release "Knock You From Yr Mountain". I always hold onto the hope that one day mankind will realize that two wrongs do not make a right.
Watch the clip below.
