21st Century Protest Song: SEE THE SEA (Ecce Mare) by BB The Artist
Swiss Singer-Songwriter BB The Artist Releases New Environmental Protest Song “See the Sea (Ecce Mare)”
— Bernhard Bauhofer
WOLLERAU, SWITZERLAND, January 23, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bob Dylan and Joan Baez sang against the Vietnam War. With “Fortunate Son”, the group Creedence Clearwater Revival attacked the corrupt American elite of the late 1960s. In his ballads, Juanes lamented the many victims of the Colombian Civil War. Today, the protest is directed against the destruction of the environment. The threat to the seas, the origin of all life, is taken up by the song “SEE THE SEA (Ecce Mare)” by Swiss artist BB The Artist which has just been released.
See, hear, smell the sea – artist BB The Artist’s just-released protest song appeals to human senses not to ignore the death of the world’s oceans. “The song is very nice like chill-out music. But the first impression is misleading, as the lyrics directly address people’s ignorance: “And we continue to drill, we continue to overthrow, we continue to kill”, says the singer-songwriter.
Ecce Mare – look, the sea
The addition “Ecce Mare” (behold, the sea) was chosen on the basis of the subject “Ecce Homo”, which is often depicted in paintings and depicts Jesus of Nazareth being delivered to the crucifixion. “Like Jesus then, the sea is now defenseless at our mercy. We cannot stand idly by and watch this slaughter”, warns the artist. Already in his hit “Together”, launched in 2020, he called for unity: “We are all adrift, dealing with trivial matters and do not see the time to act together against developments that threaten our existence. The division of peoples is the great tragedy of our time.
Solve universal problems together
The artist gained international fame with the song “Together”, which he wrote during the corona pandemic. The song urges people to act together against universal issues such as climate change or the refugee problem. A remix was also released for this song.
The artist found his ingenious counterpart in the person of Markus Glur of Skytone Music. The creative agency “Die Antwort” developed the design for the high-impact cover. “I want to thank everyone involved in creating the song, especially my longtime friend and professional musician Radoslav Jovicic, who gives the song that special touch with his saxophone.” The song can be heard on YouTube, Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and other platforms.
