FREE DOWNLOAD: www.kobadelta.bandcamp.com Official music video for 'Blame It All On Me', taken from Kobadelta's new EP 'Open Visions', available to stream or buy on CD/download NOW Video produced by Aaron Moore of Spark Sunderland, May 2015 Song recorded at First Avenue Studios, Newcastle by David Curle, March 2015. “If you go down to the woods today, ignore what the TV has to say”. The video itself may be tongue in cheek, but the song is rooted in the idea of mass media manipulation that we’re continually seeing. The media in this country is well established at pushing stereotypes, be it of the poor, of those on benefits, of immigrants or even just of ‘The North’ in general – and this stigmatisation is to fuel their own interests, namely the interests of those with the money and power to manipulate the media. They can attribute blame onto whoever they desire to divert attention from those who are the real cause via prolific blanket coverage of whatever suits their needs – or a total media blackout of whatever doesn’t. We essentially have entire papers and TV channels that are puppets to those in power, and in turn we all risk being puppets by default. We know you aren’t all mugs, but others think differently. No one seems prepared to take blame for situations we find ourselves in, instead they shift the blame to their advantage in an endless cycle of finger pointing. We're forever being told that "we're in this thing together", but the reality couldn't be further from the truth... REVIEWS: "Blame It All On Me has another rip roaring guitar break and the main riff is dominant and haunting. The characteristic slow arrogance of Kobadelta is more evident than ever as the powerful bass and drums combine with swirling synth effects to bombard anyone with a soul." - Louder Than War (May 2015) "'Blame It All On Me' has more of a snarl about it as the menacing guitars and Nick Cave style vocals weave through the night sky with serpentine cool on the lookout for a bottle of bourbon and an open minded woman." - Listen With Monger (May 2015) LYRICS: If you go down to the woods today, ignore what the TV has to say, You never find the time to pray, but my God she swears there's no other way, The hole that's in the ozone layer re-arranged the atmosphere, I told my brother "have no fear" til the clouds they disappeared Blame it all on me I don't mind if you blame it all on me Program the revolution they failed to override, Happy being on top of a North-South divide, Ties a ribbon round her neck as a mark of respect, She remembers what the elephant forgets, Fits my world like a glove, enough is enough, You need to know that I'm not giving up, Don't point the finger Mr. Kitchener, boy, we're in this thing together Blame it all on me I don't mind if you blame it all on me
