Derry, Northern Ireland, stimulating quartet Susie Blue – led by Susan Donaghy (lead vocals, rhythm guitar and synth) with John Goodman (drums), Caolan Moore (lead guitar) and Mark Doherty (bass) – unveil ‘People Like Us’, a duskily strong and passionate indie-rock track, that challenges openly, society’s diffuse hatred, homophobia and intolerance.
Speaking of the fittingly powerful video, Susan Donaghy explains: “We really wanted the message of the song to hit home through the video, these issues are happening now, people are still being killed and people are still scared to be who they are”.
The new track is the perfect continuation of Susan’s early solo efforts. ‘Trust Me’ and ‘Guess The End’, which also fiercely dealt with issues of sexuality, love and hope.
