AUDIO: Bum Alum – “Are You Ready?”
Psychedelic pop artist Bum Alum is out with a new three-song EP. Whimsical and dreamy, these tracks shimmer with John Griffin’s unique vocal delivery over colorful loops. He is outright political in the first song, singing about defunding the police and protesting racism. The second track is about being ready to try new things in life. The final track is shorter and is about not running away from your true self anymore. It holds together like a diary of Griffin’s personal journey navigating these chaotic times. All proceeds for this release go to Milwaukee organizations Leaders Igniting Transformation and Walnut Way.
