Slumber is the debut release from The Natural Order and a noteworthy collaboration with lyricist Jah Tung, delivering a powerful message over deep roots and dub soundscape. In the vain of many of the old school roots classics, Jah Tung’s vocals employ a melodic call and response style, while the musicality of The Natural Order explores the reggae rockers approach, from a heavy dub perspective.
Lyrically, Slumber is a wake-up call to remember the powers of nature, to be aware of constitutional misdirection, to re-prioritize our values and ambitions, ultimately shifting our allegiance from corporations and political persuasions to family, friends and the greater community. The vibrant visual animation provided by Sopheak Art presents a poignant perception of the current global context, suggesting a possibility to turn these changes and challenges into positive outcomes for a brighter and more connected future.
