Play Video


  • Hudson Tailor are Irish duo Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor, who make folk-tinged pop. The brothers honed their craft at an early age busking in their home city of Dublin. After becoming a word-of-mouth favorite with their energetic live shows, they signed to Polydor Records in the UK. This song marks their first major single release.
  • The song's music video stars Liam McMahon (Snatch, Hunger) as a prisoner being subjected to prison guard brutality. The Irish actor said: "Brothers, singing about replacing weapons with love to resolve a conflict is a song the world should sing along to and who's message should draw from all of us, our most diligent and creative efforts!"
