To all rock genre fans out there Guwahati based award-winning activist music act Rain in Sahara has just dropped their highly anticipated second single You Think Our Future Is a Joke on February 21, 2020. The song aims to inspire each one of us to wake up and act against the biggest crisis of our lifetime — the climate emergency.
With spine-tingling lyrics by Rain Jong, continuous banger rap beats by Lain Heringman (which if you listen carefully would ignite the soul of anyone who cares for the nature) and the dark and gloomy vibe of the entire song, one has to take a step back and think deep about the disastrous path that the planet is on. So what can we do? Do we just keep raising questions and sit tight or take take things upon ourselves and act?
