More The Electorate More The Electorate

Sydney indie-pop trio The Electorate have offered up another single from their forthcoming debut album, You Don't Have Time To Stay Lost.

With the LP set to drop on September 18, the band today reveal new cut A Good Man via its accompanying music video, premiering via The Music.

“The idea is based on recognising and being confronted with the traditional masculine ideals that make ‘a good man’ and their harmful effect on society and men themselves,” director Suziie Wang told The Music.

“For generations, the masculine ideals of stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression, have been both intentionally and unintentionally fostered and integrated into every part of our society. Aggression, terrorizing and sometimes remorse are the outcomes of the inability to appreciate and process emotions in a constructive way.

“A white male of this age is represented here because of the privilege that he represents in society and his life experience. He is at an age where he may have experienced many milestones to do with career, love, raising children, and is at a point where he may start to reflect on his life experiences.”
