  • The Black Angels - Currency Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Amidst a taxing last year, and what should be a chaotic next four, The Black Angels wrote material directly pertaining to America’s current political disaster. “Currency” is as neurotic as you’d expect coming from a single that paves the way for the basis of their entire new album. The single opens with Alex Maas howling, “Currency carry me everyone whose held hostage. Currency means nothing.” he goes on to sing, “Do you want a stake in us? How you have a stake in us.” The track is deeply rooted in an anti-greed message. Their newest album, which is based in protest, will be more relevant than ever.

The truth is The Black Angels might’ve caught onto something. As hundreds of angry protesters take to the streets and their screens, they will be looking for a battle cry to fuel their fire. If “Currency” proves anything to us, it’s that this album will be both dark and important to the new age ahead of us. Like the band says, “One day it’ll all be over.” All rights reserved.
