New Music: Bad Fit - In The City (Video)
What’s your view on lyric videos? Originally, I thought they were a little tacky, but as time has gone by I’ve come to like them quite a lot – they’re really just an internet enabled version of pulling the record out, putting the needle down, immersing yourself in the songs and reading the sleeve-notes and lyrics as the music plays. It seems a far more holistic experience and, for me, keeps my focus on listening.
In The City is a slice dreamy indie pop of the melancholy variety from Northern Ireland’s Bad Fit and comes with one such lyric video; but there’s a bit more to it than just being a vehicle to convey the words. Being on your own in a big city can, for some, make you feel more alone than being in an empty place, and the scenes of space portrayed in this film convey that very idea; sometimes people need to get away from everything to find comfort. Take a listen to In The City below, soak up its pretty melodies and chiming guitars whilst you let your worries float away.
