LIFE – SINGLE REVIEW

Life – Euromillions 
Life - Euromillions


Release Date: Out Now

There’s definitely something stirring up in Hull at the moment with a steady stream of new artists nudging their way out of the City of Culture. Life (seriously, no other band has used that before?) are the latest and they are pretty pissed off which is just what I’ve been looking for in 2017. This track, ‘Euromillions’, see the brothers Mez and Mick present a double fronted attack over the top of a sinister bass line and sneering guitars – this song is all about the lyrics. “I could have screamed bloody murder, don’t believe the buses”, “Dragon slayer bulldog wrapped in a red cross”, “Redneck racist eagle, draped in delusion built a wall across his borders”. Life are seeing and hearing what we’re all hearing and seeing but they’re using their voice to say something about it whilst sounding like the Fall and NARCS. This is abrasive and, for some, uncomfortable but for me this is the tip of the ice-berg. If 2017 isn’t full of protest songs and instead all we hear is songs about sex and dancing in clubs then there really is no hope for our world.
