Naipia’s new single ‘Lonely’ was actually written last year on Valentines Day. But it could be easily applied to this current lockdown, where so many people are staying indoors. I think it’s great that it is a celebration of loneliness because it shows you can be happy in your own company
I like the song’s positive message. When George sings “take each step, a step at a time” it shows that we can get through this. His vocals are incredible because the way he controls the pitch is mind-blowing. The guitars are also very uplifting and summery. The backing vocals in the chorus towards the end soar out of your speakers.
Over the next few weeks, Naipia are working with venues and brands to speak about how to get through this period. It shows their determination to forge a community spirit. Judging by this song, they’re going to win loads of new fans in the process.
