A song that’s equally as much a love song to the Brown people who call these lands home as well as a “middle finger to the government institutions that continue to oppress…through the generations,” Flores’ “Brown” is a fiery track. It is one that calls for unity as well as a stance against those institutions. Written to her younger self and those younger than she is now, the In The Lives They Left single finds its groove somewhere between Radiohead, Frank Ocean and Jazmine Sullivan. It’s a powerful song, one that deserves its listens and deserves to be put into your playlists as much as anything else from the site. This is the second song I’ve featured from Flores (the first was “American Dirt” back in Vol. 17 of Quickies) and it’s sure to be one of many from the activist/singer/songwriter. Check it out below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
