about

South Manchester band, Glass Ankle have recorded a new song in support of Jeremy Corbyn and his bid to become the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

The song expresses the band's desire for a fairer society for all, explains why they believe Jeremy Corbyn and his team can deliver much-needed change, and urges everyone to unite and vote for The Labour Party on the 8th June 2017 to bring about said change.

It is an incredibly catchy indie-pop song with strong melodies and inventive chord changes that prevent it from ever sounding cliché. Its lyrics are poignant and highlight important issues such as homelessness, inequality, and mainstream media bias. You can listen and download #JC4PM for free via:

SoundCloud (stream & download): soundcloud.com/glass-ankle/glass-ankle-friends-jc4pm

YouTube (stream only): youtu.be/vXMBK5lRHc8

Instead of charging for downloads, the band are encouraging people to donate to The Labour Party or Momentum.

A feature or review of the song would be brilliant. We hope you enjoy listening.

lyrics

Another library is closing down forever more
Its doorway destined to shelter one more homeless person
of the many thousands sleeping rough in England, where the suffering continues to soar
Let’s take this chance to fight against such injustice by voting in the next election

To end austerity
To mend society
To protect human rights
so everyone’s a future that’s bright

Millions of people are earning far less than enough to get by
The cost of living gets higher while the tax the richest pay gets cut again
We need a leader who’ll counter gross disparities between CEOs and lowest payee
Who won’t cow-tow to the elite. Who’s got all our best interests at heart

For more equality
For job security
For true social justice
He’s the one MP you’d have round for tea

The media’s failed to fairly present his views and character
His unwavering conviction to stand up for what's right sets him apart

To end austerity
To mend society
To fund education
so every child can have the best start in life

For more equality
For job security
For cheaper railway fares
He’s the one MP you’d have round for tea

To save our NHS
To reduce homelessness
To protect human rights
so everyone’s a future that’s bright
and make things change we have to unite
So let's vote labour on the 8th of June
