Beldon Haigh’s new song Lockdown on the Covfefe Records Label serves a large dose of gallows humour.
Scotland (PRUnderground) July 31st, 2020
Its a catchy song has a melodic swing / country groove which chronicles a moment in time at the peak of COVID 19 infections in the UK.With references to pangolins, bats, toilet rolls, the clap for the NHS, Boris Johnson’s battle with the virus and Donald Trump’s suggestions about disinfectant, the song delivers a poignant snapshot of UK life in lockdown, living with the horrifying spread of COVID19 in April 2020.
Given the seriousness of the subject, Lockdown is ultimately an empathetic and hopeful composition which treads a careful line between storytelling, gallows humour and serious comment. With picture power and irreverence the song keeps us intrigued about where every next line will go and largely avoids political traps.
There is also a video which was filmed in Lockdown between Beldon’s and Drummer Andrew Scotts studios. The video spoofs a video jamming/recording session call featuring Kim Jong Un on lap steel guitar, Vladimir Putin on Drums and Donald Trump on Bass. It’s a nice way to remind us of the roles of our collection of larger than life world leaders in one of the biggest crises to ever hit the plant.
Beldon Haigh has gone viral with his songs and videos in the past, it’s perhaps appropriately ironic that Lockdown provides the most literal meaning to that word viral.
Perhaps long after this awful pandemic has left us, Lockdown will help to capture this chilling moment in history in the same way that other great songs about disaster, often with gallows humour, have helped to chronical those moments in time.
