Sinclair – SIM Card Citizen
Sinclair are a brand new band, the five of them only formed this year.
(Four Manchester lads and a Welshman walk in to a bar..)
Oliver Crompton (Vocals), Chandler Akroyd (Lead Guitar), Benjamin Sale (Rhythm Guitar), Billie James (Bass Guitar) and Benjamin Forse (Drums.)
This track has strong messages hidden in plain sight within it’s lyrics,
a protest against what is drilled in to us from a young age, living in a city, getting the 9-5 job, the house and the mortgage.
Isn’t that a dream? This is everything we are made to believe is the key to success, but is it really?
The starting lyrics “ Always w*ankers we work for, making money for the bills we can’t pay.” just seems to scream rebellion and anger towards big businesses, the government, housing and work.
An opinion of overworked yet underpaid is made obvious throughout in lyrics such as,
“What have the children got to aim for?
An office job surrounded by dogs?
Who are out for themselves and no one else?”
Music gives the freedom to spread your ideas within your song using lyrics, it’s a power that people use for positive change.
“Institutionally brainwashed like monkeys, taught to live in a cage, your mind isn’t free unless you think like me,
just open your mouth and say, what you’re thinking, what you’re feeling, what your dream is, what you believe in.”
What a powerful statement this is similar to the ethos the punk movement followed.
I’m seeing a pattern of influence started by bands back in the day carried on by new generations with punchy lyricism and brutal honesty, as mentioned in classics like “God Save The Queen” by The Sex Pistols and “Career Opportunities ” by The Clash.
Sinclair are releasing new single SIM Card Citizen on the 27th of November.
