Great News! The Kick-ass South African Rock band Oooth have released a new music video for their track “No Race”. The track is from the band’s debut album (Who Cares What You Think). Their debut album was released in November 2018.
“No Race” was written by Jason Oosthuizen and like most of his songs, its based on the current events in our Country. Racism keeps on being one of the main topics of discussion and in the news and it feels like the country is not moving forward.
Jason Oosthuizen from Oooth explains “No Race”
“The song is about growing up not knowing I was living at a preference being white and later finding out that I would be paying the price for being a certain skin colour amongst many other messed up things happening due to racial issues. I think the chorus line projects how I feel “No race, no colour. Who you gonna fight with now that there is only each other”. Personally I think that I am really over racism in all shapes and forms.”
The video for “No Race” was shot during Oooth’s Play It Forward Online live show where they raised awareness for Tattooers Unite SA & Feed Our Crew during lockdown. The video showcases Oooth in a live setting on the MGG Productions stage. Check out the video below:
Jason Oosthuizen comments on the video for “No Race”
“I thought it would be cool to give our fans a perspective of how live shows were in a time when we weren’t able to go out and experience a live show. The setting was also just perfect, so I wanted to take the opportunity to have a live performance as a music video, while I shared the stage with some of my good friends.”
