Millwall D. This feels like one of those "best kept secret" bands. One of my favorites right now. Aggressive, political and good hardcore songs. Message is on point. Favorite track: Capital.

about

Hailing from the center and the sprawl of Southern California, MARRÓN takes its chief inspiration from the area’s highly racialized landscape of inequity, tragedy, and beauty. But while SoCal is the home, DC hardcore rings throughout the chords, and these veteran members of bands such as ESPERANZA, MUGRE, and DESCARADOS bring a new kind of fire to their emotive sound. Owing as much influence to bands like SWIZ as to the political writings of ALBERT MEMMI, MARRÓN brings a new wave of sound and race-critical perspectives to punk and hardcore that will make you want to dance and decolonize! However, you will need none of these references to be moved by the music contained in this record.

Track Name: Rut
I remember how things came and went
Before our time was to dissolve
Like a cutting blade to the chin
Leaves no scar, we can never tell
Before, you were never aware
That anything mattered at all
That anything mattered at all
Before you came along

Chorus:
I can never think to myself
before this time
this rut you found me in
before this time
I can never think to myself
Before this time
Before this time

Bridge:
There and back, and over again
There and back, and over again
There and back, and over again
There and back, and over again

You look for acceptance
For a feeling that won’t hold you back
But you won’t hold it back
You look around
But step out of bounds, and poison your words
Step out of your rut
Track Name: Slew Foot
Verse 1:
We’re looking for power
It’s in your hands,
I tried to take it away
I hope you understand
But if you don’t
I won’t owe you shit

Verse 2:
I won’t hold it against you
But I’ve got a million questions to ask
My word against yours
Which has the power to last
We’re looking for power
It’s in your hands
It’s time to move on over
I hope you understand


Chorus:
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you

Fast chorus:
Yeah, we got power, yeah
we got power, yeah
we got power, yeah
Yeah, we got power, yeah
We got power

Verse 3:
We’re looking for power
It’s in your hands
I’ll never look back
It’s in your hands
I should’ve known before
Why did I even ask?
It’s time to move on over
I hope you understand

Chorus:
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you
Move on over, or we’ll move on over you

Outro:
I can’t just place my hopes in you
It’s just something I can’t do
Track Name: Sombras
First Verse:
I’ve broken many fences, left ‘em all behind
In a hundred places, I sacrificed every time
Grab another piece of me
To leave it all behind

Bridge:
What you don’t know tears away at me
But I refuse to close my eyes, to speak of dignities denied
If I can’t paint my world to testify
If I can’t paint my world to testify

Chorus:
Alone in a crowd and I can see your throwing shade all over me,
You run and speak from behind, sombras protect from my enemies
Your never holding it down, never holding it down, yea,
Never holding it down for what we could achieve

Second Verse:
Your uniform is a fiction, I can see the disguise
You try to play my side, but we can see what you hide
Turn your head all you want to the misery
I guess it’s what we’ll call your ability
To choose the view
that keeps your pride

Outro:
And what you don’t know, tears away at me
But I refuse to close my eyes, to speak of dignities denied
If I can’t paint my world
To testify
If I can’t paint my world
To testify, testify, to testify
To testify, to testify, to testify
To testify what it means
Track Name: Anos
Verse:
Time slips away
And I’m left with another regret
To feel the words you say
To speak like we’ll never forget

Chorus:
What’s in front of me, is what I can’t see
I feel like I’ve wasted my time to decide
My stutter step has failed me again
Been hanging onto fear, when you’ve always been near
Been hanging onto fear, when you’ve always been near

Verse:
Time slips away
And I’m left with another regret
To feel the words you say
To speak like we’ll never forget

Chorus:
What’s in front of me, is what I can’t see
I feel like I’ve wasted my time to decide
My stutter step has failed me again
Been hanging onto fear, when you’ve always been near
Been hanging onto fear, when you’ve always been near
Es el miedo que no puedo ver, y no lo se
Es el miedo que no puedo ver, y no lo se
Track Name: Vallejo
These fences we climb
They mediate our minds
I try to wash my hands clean
From this residue of lies

Chorus:
There’s a barrio in every place
There’s a barrio in every place
Of our mind
There’s a barrio in every place
There’s a barrio in every place
By design

These fences we climb
They mediate our minds
Try to wash my hands clean
Take back control of our minds
These fences we climb
They mediate our minds
Try to wash my hands clean
From this residue of lies

Chorus:
There’s a barrio in every place
There’s a barrio in every place
Of our mind
There’s a barrio in every place
There’s a barrio in every place
By design

These fences we climb
they mediate our minds
try to wash my hands clean
Take back control of our minds
These fences we climb
They mediate our minds
Try to wash my hands clean
From this residue of lies
Track Name: Narrow
These cages are meant
To calm your fears
Pay no mind to the bodies inside, and the lives that came across
Because they helped you lay aside, while the lines got crossed

It’s a narrow line, is it yours or mine
while you were blind, we confined
It’s a narrow line, is it yours or mine
while you were blind, we confined

Our brothers will ask many questions
About our landscapes of repression
Pay no mind to the bodies inside, and the lives that came across
Because they helped you lay aside, while the lines got crossed

It’s a narrow line, is it yours or mine
while you were blind, we confined
It’s a narrow line, is it yours or mine
while you were blind, we confined
Track Name: Trucha
Boulevards never burned so bright in a flame of rage
But I need to know what amount people have to pay
To feed your concept of sacrifice
Our scars are more than plenty to pay your price

Chorus:
But what ignites your fight
That has to do with me
Look around, heads up, head down
This is what I see
But what ignites your fight
That has to do with me
Look around, heads up, head down
This is what I see

You talk about strength, but it bares no reality
Comfort in your demons, we can always spare more
Alertness comes from experience, not from security
There’s an escape for you, it don’t exist for me

Chorus:
But what ignites your fight
That has to do with me
Look around, heads up, head down
This is what I see
But what ignites your fight
That has to do with me
Look around, heads up, head down
This is what I see

Talking part:
You know, I couldn’t help notice, that you look at me like I don’t belong, walking the same damn streets you do. It’s as if you couldn’t be bothered by others who don’t make you feel comfortable or at ease with yourself. I’m not going anywhere, you can price me out, fence me in, we’ll still be here.

Chorus:
But what ignites your fight
That has to do with me
Look around, heads up, head down
This is what I see
But what ignites your fight
That has to do with me
Look around, heads up, head down!
Track Name: Capital
Field the wheels of profit, without no loss
Bodies are broken, banks and money--our cross

Yet a million arms,
carried the world today

I’m thinking it could never be fair, to clean the world into our own despair
I’m thinking it could never be fair, to clean the world at their own despair

Spurned by wheels of capital
That churn, that churn, that burn, that spurn

I’m thinking it could never be fair, to clean the world at their own despair
I’m thinking it could never be fair, to clean the world at their own despair
