Pete Wilde explores a culturally relevant theme in his song ‘Say My Name’; tackling topics like police brutality and injustice. The rock-and-roll style anthem is a take on the climate of today’s society. Familiar expressions like “I Can’t Breathe” (referencing the death of Eric Garner) strike a nerve. A foray into political commentary through music is not done often enough in today’s music; it’s commendable that this artist used his talents to do so.

Wilde showcases his impressive rockstar vocals as well. Reminiscent of Classic Rock, we get a feel for what this artist is capable of.
