LA musician Emma Ruth Rundle has added her contribution to the growing wave of protest and benefit music in light of Donald Trump’s inauguration today. “Forever, As The Setting Son” is a powerfully brooding ballad from the Marriages and Red Sparrowes member, and all proceeds from the track benefit Planned Parenthood. Rundle shared this statement along with the music:
“Forever, As The Setting Son” was written and recorded in a humble lo-fi setting in Los Angeles some years ago. Yes it’s “Son” and yes it’s noisy and emotional, all reasons why I couldn’t bring myself to ever re-track this song. I find myself filled with grief these days, similar to that expressed in the song, over many of the issues we as humans, as tenants of the Earth, will face in the coming era. While I am unable to join the marches set to take place all over the U.S. on Saturday, I would like to offer this song and will be donating all the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. I have been grateful for them in my life, as a young woman, and hope that we can come together to preserve the future of such an important institution in this divisive time so that they may continue to provide care for people of all races, religions, sexes, countries of origin, all genders. Be excellent to each other.
