King Youngblood’s first single of this new crop of fresh alt rock music for your listening pleasure is a somewhat dark melody and message called Opaque. Lead Singer and the group’s founder, Cameron Lavi-Jones explains, “The song is about marginalized people wanting to be seen for the right reasons; not tokenized but instead, heard and seen thoroughly. I wish this song was not so relevant today.”
This song, especially during this tragic pandemic is more relevant than ever for people experiencing homelessness, people of color, the LGBTQ+ communities, people who don’t matter economically to the political elite, people suffering from social justice inequities, and well, people who can get shot down just for jogging because of the color of their skin.
