Down North

Band Drops Single Dedicated to Gun Violence Victim

The chaos of the world was the driving force behind Seattle-based soul punk band Down North’s “Your World,” a fast-paced track inspired by a child dancing in Toys ‘R Us and dedicated to the short-lived life of Milwaukee’s Sandra Parks, a 13-year old student and award-winning anti-gun essayist who was shot and killed in her bedroom in 2018 by stray bullets.

With lyrics that tell the story of a little girl brushing her hair in her bedroom, Down North’s frontman, Anthony Briscoe, portrays a simple scene that would fall to pieces should a stray bullet shoot through the glass of her window panes.

“Your World” is available through digital streaming services everywhere (link).

Down North is currently on a U.S. tour.
