Musician/author Mickey Leigh and his band mates in Mutated Music are taking on judicial inequality in the group’s new single.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Two Kinds of Law’ Wednesday. The video features the band performing its new single in a studio style setting and crosses that with footage of a man being tazed by a police officer and a black woman telling children why their father will not be coming home. The imagery is used to help illustrate the song’s lyrical theme that focuses on the different ways in which people are treated by law enforcement.
Leigh talked about that theme in a recent interview.
The concept that there are “two kinds of law- one for the rich, and one for the poor,” is not exactly one that came about recently,” he said. “I first heard those words many decades ago, in a book and film called “In Cold Blood”, and, though said in different words, in a speech by Martin Luther King Jr. I just, recently, felt compelled to write a song about it. Very compelled.”
“The importance of “equality” and “justice for all” has come to the forefront of our lives like never before and, it’s a message that needs to be repeated…repeatedly,” he added. “There aren’t many ways to repeat a message repeatedly without boring people to tears, aside from immersing it in a catchy chorus and irresistible rhythm.”
Speaking of music, the song’s musical arrangement is a catchy work that exhibits a classic rock and roll vibe that reaches back to the 1970s. That is especially evidenced through the song’s guitar line and through Leigh’s own vocal delivery style. The song’s time keeping and bass line deepen its presentation and make it that much more engaging and entertaining.
