Our next single taken from ADF’s forthcoming album will be “Swarm”, released on June 5th 2020!
“Swarm” is another take on immigration and borders that recalls the hypnotic motion of Marley’s “Exodus”. Former UK Prime Minister David Cameron called immigrants from Syria a “swarm”. It was meant to be a derogatory, dehumanising slur. But here Asian Dub Foundation turn the insult on its head. In nature, a swarm is an incredible display of collective intelligence, symbolising the power of a unified action that allows a swarm of bees to act “ten times faster than the speed of thought”. We are the swarm, and “history dictates we will take what is ours”.
