Summer In The City

The idea behind this song was to create something that would feel happy and uplifting to the listener in a time when there is a very bleak outlook in our world. I was determined to make the most of the summer, and making this song was an important step. When 1000 Beasts sent me the beat I was immediately inspired. When writing the lyrics and melodies it was my goal to create a feeling of nostalgia in the listener and also promote the idea that, whilst it might be tough in our current climate, it is still possible to enjoy ourselves right now.
