Maroon Town - "Watching The Trees" [music video]
"Watching the Trees" is a naggingly catchy ska lament with echoes of the band's original Jamaican influences as well as peers like Manu Chao and the Gorillaz.
Radical ska and rap collective, Maroon Town, return with a stark commentary on the way we are systematically choking up the planet - and ourselves. Maroon Town are the recognised pioneers of this genre and boast in their line-up MC Rubi Dan (also part of the hugely "Heatwave" bashment/dubstep and reggae sound system) and Captain Ska whose searing indictment of the UK's political elite "Liar Liar" was a viral smash in December last year.
