feature: indie hardcore alt rockers djevara shout #blacklivesmatter with latest track – ‘black boy’

October 6, 2015

Listen to ‘Black Boy’, the latest track from indie hardcore alt rock group Djevara (a South London based group who started in the Midlands when frontman and spoken-word artist Anté decided to start a punk band in the area’s D.I.Y scene). The band – made up of Geoff Courts on guitar, Anté (aka ‘Bass’) on words and guitar, and Malc on drums/programming – touch on #BlackLivesMatter with their latest offering, and the track is electrifying. This is a trio who don’t shy from politics. As their camp states, “Djevara have been politically active and outspoken from Day 1, supporting anti-fascist/racist movements, anti-child soldier and human rights campaigns as an integral part of what the band is about.” Steam ‘Black Boy’ below.
