Darlow - Down Like Flies

Darlow - Down Like Flies
Down Like Flies is a guitar driven anthemic rock song that was written by Darlow frontman Scott Darlow after spending a day at Banksia Hill Detention Center in Canningvale, Perth. The song was inspired by seeing a disproportionate amount of Indigenous Australian children in maximum security prison. But rather than pen a song that lays blame at the feet of broader Australia - Darlow wrote this lyric from a heart of wanting to see his people (Darlow being an Aboriginal man from Yorta Yorta country) make every effort possible to help arrest the statistics that we see all over Australia. "I believe that education is a key to true reconciliation" Said Darlow. "Aboriginal children are currently 10 times more likely to go to prison than finish high school at the moment, and that’s just heartbreaking. So for us as Aboriginal people, we need to play our part in reconciliation, and that is, I think, getting our kids to school. Get them attending, and get them actively participating and really pushing to finish high school. Then, we will see Aboriginal kids become Aboriginal doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers and accountants, and that generation will then become the next lot of role models."
