People Like People Like Them by LØE

Adapting the speech by Howard Beale (Peter Finch) from the film, The Network (1976) – this track aims to capture the same desperation, and futility of a man taking the state of the world into consideration. There is a futility in the voice, a remarkable sense of hopelessness. The instrumentation and specifically the chaotic guitar clash is the perfect metaphor to the aching voice in the movies sample. It moves from this desperation to the rising and a call to action…

“I want all of you to get out of your chairs, I want all of you to get up and go to the window and yell, I’m mad as hell and I won’t take this anymore!”

The Network, 1976

The artists, LOE, look to shed a light on how our media exploits disaster, pain and conflict in order to gain profit, The artists share that this shows just how far our society has turned, and how unjust our systems are.

The interesting aspect of the message in the track really culminates in that last line, … “I want all of you to get out of your chairs, I want all of you to get up and go to the window and yell, I’m mad as hell and I won’t take this anymore!” We all have the power now, in our day and age to stand up against injustice and our corrupt capitalist societies. We can band together, use our voice, and stand against this corruption. brilliant message.
