Never happy with genre boundaries, I:Scintilla has taken its metal-infused electronica signature and drawn in elements of synth pop, trip-hop, and indie electro. With their latest release they have also stepping into more political territory with their beautiful song The War To Win. 100% of sales will be donated to UN Women to support programs that promote women’s human rights, their economic and political empowerment and gender equality.
The band have this to say on their bandcamp page:
Are you a feminist? Does the label make you uncomfortable? It shouldn't.
Every woman has been negatively impacted by gender inequality. It shouldn't come as a surprise that all men have also been deeply effected by these same injustices. In many cases, gender discrimination has stolen the voices, gifts, rights, safety and in some instances, the lives of women all over the world. It has stunted the growth of mankind; shattered spirits; and taken from us great scholars, artists, mothers, writers, humanitarians, and leaders that would have made a true difference in the lives of all people. If you are a believer in basic human rights, then you also believe in fighting for gender equality. You are a feminist.
This is not a discussion of Men vs. Women. This is a battle for equal rights and empowerment for all regardless of gender. It is our responsibility, both men and women banded together, to battle violence and discrimination of women and girls around the globe. This is the war to win. We are on the same side and should be expanding our network of allies to combat these injustices. Together, men and women, we are stronger; united we create a more beautiful and peaceful universe.
We wrote this song,“The War to Win”, for a young woman who is a warrior in the truest sense of the word. She survived unthinkable abuse by the hands of a loved one with the system, her family, and the odds stacked against her. Today she shares her story with others who have gone through similar harrowing experiences to help facilitate the process of healing. In her honor and for all women effected by violence, abuse, and gender inequality, we are donating ALL proceeds generated by this song to UN Women. You may donate as little or as much as you would like to the cause to make a difference in the lives of ALL people.Check out the track here and donate to this awesome initiative:
