Premiere: Johnny [From The Burbs] Hits Back At The Government With A Political Single 'Propaganda'


Western Sydney rapper Johnny [From The Burbs] has released a heavy hitting political single ‘Propaganda’ which we are excited to premiere here today on SYS.

‘Propaganda’ is the lead single off his EP with the same title. The single is as you would expect topical and self-explanatory and takes a look at “the use of news as a political weapon, how people can be prejudiced by the government’s attempts at subliminally influencing our opinions on everything from the US Presidency to immigration.”

‘Propaganda’ as an EP is dark, but not negative – braggadocio & hopeful in the loudest way possible. In keeping with the EP’s title track - lyrical influences range from refugee rights to government distrust and the overall political agenda of propaganda being used as a political weapon.

Giving up his ‘day job’ as lead vocalist in a metal band, the hip-hop artist and producer did a U-turn and dropped his debut mixtape ‘Springtime Sorrows’ in 2017 as Johnny [From the Burbs]. The last 12 months has seen him rack up radio airplay across the country and build into packed out shows right across Western Sydney. With ‘Propaganda’ he’s ready to go next level.
