Manuok‘s track ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ stands apart from the usual indie rock fare – it’s ominous, dark and a little intense. Watch out for these guys.
The band explain:
‘Jacob’s Ladder’ is primarily an anti-war song. It’s not my first and probably won’t be my last. To be clear, I’m forever grateful to the people who risk their lives to defend my country – my grandfather included. But this song speaks to the fatigue felt about the United States entering into wars under false pretenses. On top of that, over and over again, we spend trillions of dollars to send the poor to war, and yet the treatment and care for our veterans is terrible. The title gets it’s name from the Adrian Lyne film of the same title about a Vietnam veteran.
