One Track // Braden Lam – “Forest Fires”

In a year that has been largely unprecedented, leave it to Braden Lam to lay out the horrifying truth about our environment in a catchy, folky earworm. His latest single paints a bleak, terrifying, and sadly not untrue picture of where things stand at present. Just flip the news on, and you’ll be hard pressed to find some part of the planet not currently marred by Floods, Fires, or Famine, and Gen-Y certainly has cause to be disillusioned as they have to wade through a mess not of their own doing. We can take some small solace in the fact that while we watch it all burn, the soundtrack will be infectious.

A proud and over-caffeinated husband, father, runner and writer. I've written for the local weekly The Coast for over a decade and have since taken to creating and writing for HAFILAX for even longer. I hope you enjoy the musings of a guy who has loved music for the better part of 4 decades, and has an album of concert tickets to show for it.
