LOCKDOWN LIE - NEW RELEASE
Sept 23, 2020
Lockdown Lie is a song we wrote during the Lockdown. Between the end of March 2020 and the end of April 2020, we were busy working on finishing up our new record but while that was happening, a lot of new ideas came to us and Lockdown Lie was one such idea.
It started off as a video scratch of Michael fooling around with his camera in a parking lot that looked like it had been attacked by zombies. Vin loved the music playing in the short video and decided to pursuade Michael to turn it into a full song. It came together and Thomas worked out the drums out of his home in Dubai. The song was then sent to Praful in Bengaluru, India and he recorded the bass guitars. Vin then sat down with the track and composed the music around it. Josh's keyboard ideas added the last part to the song BUT it didn't feel complete. The one thing that was clear was that the pandemic was 'real' but the news around it was driving everyone f'n crazy. So, we decided to focus on some of the news that really had us all in a tizzy and that's how our intro came about.
This song is dedicated to all the frontline workers who have given their all, including in many cases, their lives protecting people during this pandemic. But please be safe and keep distance and for God's sake, behave! From what we've seen so far, humanity really needs to get its s*** together.
God Bless You all and do enjoy the song!
