We already know that the latest Montaigne single ‘Ready’ is all about the need for immediate climate action.
After all, when we covered the track early last month, she said of it, “The song is about this political moment, where humanity is starting to realise how actually cooked this planet is, that it never had to be like this, and that we have the power now to overthrow those who’ve forced us into this corner.”
“It’s music that I’m proud of representing, because I think that it reflects the feelings swirling around the current political shitfest my generation is facing, and it attempts to transform the anxiety amongst those feelings into angry power. It’s like a fuel source.”
Not Montaigne has taken the message one step further, with a similarly powerful music video.
“The video is supposed to be a celebration and most importantly encouragement towards the school strikes for climate,” she explains.
“‘Ready’ is dedicated to young people who are not yet jaded and worn down by the realities of this world. Those who inspire us with the fire of anger against injustice so that we may be galvanised to stand up and demand what is right from our world leaders.”
And after all, it’s the kids of tomorrow who will have to deal with the effects of the inaction of the leaders of today.
Are you ‘Ready’ to take a stand?
