Watch: Morrissey & Marshall – Stand Down


Set for release on August 26, ‘Stand Down’ by Dublin rock n’ roll duo Morrissey and Marshall is a track inspired “by those poor unfortunates (politicians) who tend to stop at nothing when striving for success… They will lie, mislead, instil fear and do whatever it takes to get the people on side, without any true regard for the people. This song sparks the idea that there will eventually come a time when we’ll come together, rise above the fear and use truth, honesty and love to start fixing all of the things that need to be fixed.”

An admirable, clear-cut stance and no mistaken. Taken from the forthcoming debut album, check out James Skerritt’s video for the track – a straight-up, burrowing pop effort – below.
