Oisin’s Journey to Grand Design

Singer/songwriter Oisin O’Neill chats with astraea about how he came to create Grand Design, released on 25 May.

We observe the strange coincidence that Grand Design was released on 25 May, the day celebrated by some for “The Glorious Revolution” of truth – a fictional event, and now also to be celebrated by us for the martyrdom of George Floyd. Let George Floyd’s execution not be in vain. The coincidence is in keeping with the spirit of Grand Design which, Oisin tells us, emerged from his passion in a natural integration of feeling, sounds and words.
Enjoy the music!

We are mad as hell. Will we remain charred and broken or will we rise from the ashes?

The anger released by the nurder in broad daylight, on camera, of George Floyd has been held back for years.

And it has been growing for years.

Black people are right to voice their frustration and anger at the encouraging role of the government in oppressing minorities.

Everyone is angry, everyone is afraid. When the institution we build to protect us murders us we know the system is broken, and fear takes over. We should all join in peaceful protest.

We must make change happen now.

Killer Mike says it well.
