Land Of The Free (A Perfect Place) is the new video from Italian trip-hop outfit Obsqure & Suz, tackling the plight of refugees across the world.
By Graeme Smith
A smooth, downbeat track plays over the images of faceless travellers in a video that has an immediate impact. The message is simple and powerful in both the lyrics and the haunting horn accompaniment. Land Of The Free goes a little way to act as a counterweight to the current predominately negative coverage of immigration that dominates the media. I’d defer anyone to watch this video and not think twice about the assumptions they are making on the subject.
This is the second single from Suz’s album Crossroads, out this month. Check out the video for Land Of The Free below.
