Written just 3 weeks ago today, “Our House Is On Fire” is a moving visual and musical wake-up call to the world. In the roles of songwriter, performer and first-time video editor, much-loved foundation member of the club Helen Perris’ drive and passion for our planet’s future is palpable and insistent.
“On the day of the School Strike 4 Climate, I sat at home, unable to attend, but feeling like I needed to do something to make sure my voice was included in the many. The theme for the week was Dashing and I immediately thought of my children’s future hopes and dreams being dashed by inaction regarding our climate crisis. I wrote this song in anger as an open letter to our political leaders, inspired by the words of Greta Thunberg. It was recorded with Josh Schuberth on Monday and is released today, which is the fastest I’ve ever turned around a project.”
