Today Could Be EP from 2017 is Kvit‘s second EP.
This is Kvit, a shrilling alarm hoping to wake someone up from the big sleep of today. Drawing from a wide range of genres this alternative rock band combines restless vocals and howling guitars, spanking drums, gnarling bass and sweeping synths and makes for a great soundtrack of the collapse.
With the EP we want to encourage dialogue on power:
“The strategic adversary is fascism… the fascism in us all, in our heads and in our everyday behavior, the fascism that causes us to love power, to desire the very thing that dominates and exploits us.”
― Michel Foucault
Political power has evolved from a viewable power seen in the hands of the elite to a more effective one internalized by the controlled masses. The power is upheld by ourselves, the oppressed. This power doesn’t need any judges our prisons. We are the judges and we contain ourselves and others in the prison of our everyday life. We turn against everyone not behaving in the conformed manner demanded by the discourse of our time and compel ourselves to conformity in fear of the judgement of others. But, if we are the keepers of the power oppressing us, then also we must hold the power to liberate. “Today could be” is about just that. We have to acknowledge our part, “the fascism in us”. We have the power to liberate but that has to be a collective act. We have to put aside our court dress and come together in true dialogue. “Today could be the day”.
