Noise Cans enlists the help of Jamaican roots reggae vocalist Jesse Royal on the protest song, “No War,” off his forthcoming Masquerave EP. Layering Royal’s impassioned rally calls over a dubby, melodic electronic production, the masked Caribbean delivers a powerful anti-war message. Premiered on Mass Appeal, the Cameron Busby directed visual brings the single to life through earnest song and emphatic dance.

As Noise Cans told Mass Appeal, “I’ve always turned to music to get me through whatever was going on in my life, and given everything happening in the world today, I felt I had to address it and offer some sort of relief and positivity. I hope ‘No War’ becomes an anthem for peace and change.”

A musical experience that is part carnival, part incantation, and altogether a pure electronic celebration, Noise Cans’ unique blend has earned acclaim from critics around the world such as Vogue, The Guardian, Fader and LargeUp. Drawing inspiration from the Gombey, an iconic Bermudan symbol born of resistance to authority, Noise Cans expresses a contemporary embodiment of this rich folkloric tradition rooted in African, indigenous, Caribbean, and British cultures.

Adding to the positive message through poignant vocals is Jamaica’s Jesse Royal, who just completed North American “Always Be Around” tour. His passion for peace stems all the way back to his childhood, when he befriended the son of Ziggy Marley, Daniel “Bambaata” Marley. Today Royal is revered as leader of the “Reggae Revival,” where his songs motivate listeners to love and connect with one another. His inspiring story earned him a spotlight in Vogue’s “Reggae Revival” report, as well as an episode of Noisey Jamaica on VICELAND.
