Alt-rock/trap trio Leave The Universe is here to rock the scene with their new single “N.W.O.”. Reminiscent of bands like Linkin Park, Leave The Universe combines the sounds of rock, hip-hop, and trap music into one mega-genre that thuds and pulsates through the airwaves. Cameron Cole, Kalin Pugh, and Jordan Humphries, are also very politically conscious, and this single reflects that heavily.
Short for “New World Order”, this track was written the day after the last U.S. presidential election. That day I saw the perfect example of a system where the general population was like pieces being moved in an elaborate game by the powers that be for the benefit of a select few. I don’t think that people realize how much power they truly have in the fact that the game masters need the the people in order to thrive. People are kept in check by a fabricated system of money. This song is meant to be a reminder that we as the people do have the power to change a flawed system if we can stand together, instead of against each other, and recognize the true enemy. We have to power to create a new world.
