Beauty Pill - Instant Night [CD]
Cat. no: CDNS137
Release Date: 10 Dec 2021
The lyrics of 'Instant Night' are insinuating and allusive, not topical - It's only a political song in the way that Dylan's 'A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall' or Public Enemy's 'Fight The Power' are political songs
People call them 'protest songs,' but neither of those songs is as specific as people think. Go back and listen again; they're pretty abstract! They are more poetic than polemic. 'Instant Night' exists within that spectrum too. Originally written by Beauty Pill bandleader Chad Clark in 2015 after he watched Ann Coulter, as a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher, predict that Donald Trump would win the 2016 US presidential election, the Washington, D.C. based artist recorded and surprise-released the single in October 2020 out of urgency to inspire people to vote in the presidential election.
