With Summer well and truly upon us this weekend, what better way to soundtrack it than with some new music. Singer-songwriter George Pelham has just released his debut single What A Time To Be Alive which is full of upbeat, feel-good tones to get you singing and tapping along to this catchy track.
The video for the track has also been released and follows George on a solo beach adventure enjoying the typical seaside amusement. The video is filmed from the perspective that you’re there as the second person on his big day out watching as he has the time of his life. As George explained “I wrote this song about falling in love, and I felt the music should reflect the excitement of that. My favourite songs have always been positive in some way, so I wanted this record to feel like a celebration!”.
Recorded at Small Pond Studios in Brighton with Dan Smith of The Noisettes, as soon as the track begins you find yourself carried away with it tapping along to the beat. The 60s inspired sound is a breath of musical fresh-air, especially when combined with George’s chirpy vocals. These vocals have been honed thanks to the relentless touring schedule over the last few years from Thrope Park to a four-month residency at Ronnie Scott’s in London, George is no stranger to live shows. This makes the thought of his upcoming headline date at The Finborough Arms in London on 6th September even more exciting; expect sing-alongs, dancing and some of George’s charm to no doubt shine through onstage. Tickets are available from here.
