24 Hour Blogathon - Ider - Saturday

This post is part of a 24 hour blogathon (conducted after a 10 mile run) in support of Solent Mind, a mental health support charity. I would be really grateful if you would help by sponsoring me and help raise some funds for the charity. You can find my sponsorship page by clicking this link

There have been an awful lot of songs created during the Covid-19 pandemic that are frankly pretty awful. Come on artists; it’s not good enough to just sing or rap some basic lyrics about being in lockdown without adding some context, depth or an interesting story. 

Thankfully the  new song from Ider created in lockdown is way more interesting, albeit quite sad and despondent sounding – although there’s a real beauty in the chorus.

 “The world is sick and so are we,” they sing on a video that perfectly fits the sheer heaviness of it all. Megan and Lily both caught the virus and were pretty ill – but out of it has come quite possibly one of the best quarantine songs. They make being downcast sound haunting.

Literally no point in any band making a lockdown referencing song since 5ive who already taken the crown.
