PJ Harvey Holds Nothing Back In Politically Charged Video
  • FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2016

  • Posted by: Don Saas



We're getting a new PJ Harvey album in 2016 which means 2016 already has one significant checkmark in the win column. The Hope Six Demolition Project, due out next month, is PJ Harvey's eleventh studio LP since 1992's Dry which is a staggering accomplishment for any artist. We've been getting tastes of the singles from the new album including "The Wheel" and now we're getting a video for the politically activist track, "The Community of Hope."

The song tackles the poverty and gentrification of a Washington, D.C. ward (and for those not in the know about Washington, D.C., it may be our nation's capital, but it also includes some of the most impoverished communities in the country) and whether it's the fire of Harvey's lyrics/delivery or the constant despair and contrasts of the no holds barred video, it's hard to walk away from this video without feeling like you need to do something to make your city and its most vulnerable neighborhoods a better place.
