The Rubberbandits have delivered their most powerful and poignant political statement to date. Sonny takes on the hidden scandal of suicide in Ireland, smashing the stereotypes that are placed upon victims and their families with merciless intent.
Sonny is without a doubt the most powerful song released by an Irish act in 2017. The track concludes with The Rubberbandits imploring men to ‘put down the rope’.
Hanging is the most prevalent method of suicide by Irish males accounting for 70% of deaths.
