New Music: Dialectic (@Dialectic1) ‘Memories of Oblivion’


We often tend to ignore and over­look the indi­vidu­als and the victims/survivors of glob­al cata­strophes; their stor­ies and suf­fer­ing is writ­ten out of main­stream dis­course and his­tory. We focus more on the polit­ics and take up space by arguing and bick­er­ing over dif­fer­ing opin­ions. With the suf­fer­ing in Syr­ia and the refugee crisis as a whole, Dialectic’s new track Memor­ies of Obli­vi­on, fea­tur­ing Masa Ham­wi on vocals and pro­duced by UK based Agent of Change, it is writ­ten from the per­spect­ive of a sur­viv­or of such cata­strophes; for those whose stor­ies we nev­er hear enough of, who die every­day name­less, face­less, bur­ied without funer­als, the des­pised, the for­got­ten; their exist­ence summed by mere stat­ist­ics and empty phrases. Through parts of the media they’re dehu­man­ized, we’re fur­ther desens­it­ized towards their suf­fer­ing and so we’re made to feel no affin­ity or empathy towards them, as if they deserve to die because of the labels we estab­lish our soci­et­ies on.

‘Memor­ies Of Obli­vi­on’ is taken from Dialectic’s upcom­ing debut EP ‘The Cir­cus’.
