Before Sunday brings us the song “Living in London,” written and composed by Nik Basis. It was released with their 2020 album Anticipation from Rockshots Records.
With a mix of pop, contemporary rock, funk, and other musical genres, the song had an opportunity to be a huge mess. Instead, the band brings it together to a pleasantly eclectic sound. I liked the composition and especially how they meld in the various instruments, synth, and the lead singer’s voice brings it together.
There was an alien who can be seen floating through London in both the fun scenes, historical regions, and in the crummy parts of the city. He was a cool little mascot who would appear and then the video would go to animated sequences of the band playing with a white backdrop.
The lyrics were a fun exploration of living in an expensive, but intriguing large city, in this case, London. It had a charm to it, bringing out the frustrations and the adventures of moving to the big city. Some of the lyrics were a bit obvious, but the song showed imagination as it took the listener on this journey. I thought it was a delight to hear and I look forward to more.
