Synthpop enthusiasts Yes Nice rightfully have an issue with the representation of people of colour in media. On their new single “White Washed Walls”, the Edmonton/Vancouver songwriting duo of Nathaniel Wong and Scott McKellar tackle the matter of subtle albeit prevalent racism, and set it against a lush synth-enhanced backdrop. The accompanying music video finds them waving a white flag across Toronto’s west end. Powerful stuff.
The single appeared on the recently released Sparks compilation disc Royally Sparked IIand will also be included on an upcoming full-length, release date TBA.
