Speaking about his song, Ballad for the Unemployed, McCarthy explains:

The character in the song is an unemployed man that feels his country has repeatedly failed him and is in self imposed quarantine bleakly obsessing over motivational speaker Tony Robbins, who has become his imaginary friend.

William McCarthy, better known as the frontman for the bands Pela and Augustines, is also an artist, an author, an apparently a fortune teller because:

I wrote this song long before this was our reality, and ironically it has become a chilling battle cry for what we are living through.

It’s a good EP and it’s an amazing song. One of the best songs of the year, and ever!
