Now Watching: Crack Cloud – 'Favour Your Fortune'

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Innovative Vancouver-based collective Crack Cloud has revealed the video for their explosive single 'Favour Your Fortune'. The song is cut from their impressive and thought-provoking debut album PAIN OLYMPICS, which was released into the world back in July. 

Featuring pro-skater Joe Buffalo, the self-made video for 'Favour Your Fortune' reflects on the disastrous war on drugs sweeping not only North America but also the rest of world — particularly on the ways it has been used to create a continuous cycle of increased imprisonment, racial divide and hate, as well as death. The video also opens up with a powerful and moving collection of words by Eris Nyx of the Coalition of Peers Dismantling the Drug War (C.P.D.D.W).

The video's startling subject matter is also channelled lyrically, especially with words such as, "So young to start conceiting / Every steps a misdemeanour / Always on the run / From the guilt inside its like a fever / High strung without volition / One toke away from twitching / All wounds resurface in the night / Eighteen with no remission."
