I write about things I feel strongly about. Real stories. Real narratives. Songs with spirit in them. Songs with solutions. Songs with questions. I see the power music has to influence and bring attention to current events and create movements.-Bri Schillings
Ignorance Is Violence
Thought-provoking and hopeful anthem, Ignorance Is Violence, by Sweet Imperfections, was written to inspire change during a road trip in 2021, when Schillings was shocked by the lingering smoke from the devastating wildfires that had ravaged California. She witnessed the effects of our ignorance around the pressing subject of climate change and the violence of our ignorance we were experiencing first hand.
The lyrics, “smoke filled air covering the earth everywhere we go, it feels like the whole world is getting ready to explode,” sets the tone for the inspiring single, as the wailing guitar line cries for help. With a driving beat, the song ebbs and flows, injecting us with hope and determination to make a change.
Hoping to raise awareness of climate change, Schillings urges “Ignorance Is Violence” to inspire individuals and groups to take action to counter the impacts of climate change.
On top of experiencing first hand the hottest summer recorded, breathing smoke from the fires, we felt a weight of frustration and recognized our responsibility to take a stand. We had recently watched Greta Thunberg’s documentary “I am Greta” which inspired us to use a clip from one of her speeches during the outro of the song.-Bri Schillings
Let “Ignorance is Violence” be the message we need to make a change, for our actions today shape the world of tomorrow.
