Art pop outfit BRAVES has teamed up with actress-singer Nikki Reed to release the track “World’s on Fire” in response to the latest rash of wildfires that have ravaged California. Due to being residents of the state, the persistent fires have affected both Reed and the group, which is comprised of producer Johnny What, JERICHO and Thorald of the Wood.
“Our world’s on fire — the blaze raging in Yosemite, global warming’s rapidly approaching point of no return, incendiary human rights violations and much, much more. It’s time we stop waiting for someone else to do something," BRAVES says in a statement. "It’s time to eat less meat and packaged foods, drive less and walk more, avoid single-use plastics, vote for representatives who share these values and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
“We wrote this song as a reminder to humanity that Mother Earth is our only home, and we need to take better care of her," they continue. "Please share this song and use it as a way to talk with people in your life about what we can do to save our planet. All Bandcamp proceeds will go to American Red Cross’ Wildfire Relief.”
