I first heard this track as part of this week’s “New Mix” episode, from NPR Music. It’s haunting, poignant, genuine. It’s worth listening to with complete focus.
Shifting Sand by Anna Larson
Anna Larson wrote [Bob Boilen] to say, “I wish I didn’t live in a world where writing a song about senseless gun violence was something I had to do.” But “Acting Alone” is a poetic and powerful approach to an all-too-common event. The song was written to benefit Moms Demand Action.~ NPR Music
