We all occasionally have a bad day. Whether it be stepping on dog excrement, forgetting an umbrella on a rainy day or tripping over a curb, life can be hard sometimes. Most prevail past these trials and tribulations, others sink. It’s the ones that drown in the emotional bubble of self-hate and depression that need the most help. Fortunately, the most prominent musicians, celebrities and influencers are speaking out and diminishing the stigma attached to it. Not only that, but artists are utilising their music as a tool to share introspective stories regarding mental health and wellbeing. Introducing The Common View, and their new single, Early Grey.
An indie-rock song reflecting the doom and gloom of lockdown, this track is not only a representation of the uncertain times but an exceptional masterpiece. You can hear the optimism in the vocals, the sense of urgency in the drumsticks, The Common View is a band for the grassroots, working-class masses, fighting for daily essentials, and Early Grey is yet another reminder of this.
We highly recommend you leave this song on repeat throughout the day because all the profits from streaming platforms are going to Leeds Mind; a fantastic charity helping people achieve positive mental health since 1972. Tomorrow will be an Early Grey day. Make sure you have one too.
