It'll Be Okay (Just Stay Home)
Updated: Apr 19, 2020
We're coping with Malaysia's Restricted Move Order during the COVID-19 pandemic in our own ways. But we can also talk about it through music. Now, it doesn't quite beat a drink at a bar while sussing things out with the friends, but it comes pretty damn close as a decent coping mechanism.
We thought about some things happening around us, and it became a song that we recorded separately (social distancing only, folks). Whether it's Dervin's befuddlement over spices, Hilmy's missing gigs or Ian worried about being apprehended for dog walking, these are things that can weirdly snowball into genuine forms of stress during an acclimation period.
On the side, we've been trying to raise funds for organisations and charities that need help during the RMO. We don't know quite know what we're doing, but if you're in a position to help, please do. You can support the organisations that we've listed here, as well as visit the Us Vs Covid Event Page on Facebook to check out other musicians who're raising awareness. Also, check out its Facebook Page as well for updates.
Frankly, not everyone can share optimism openly, and that's okay, too. But we're in this together. Please stay safe, and be good. Be decentttt. There'll be time to fight tomorrow, we promise.
We cannot say this enough, but we hope you're doing well.
