Beekeeper is the indie rock project of Daniel Morton. The Brighton-based singer songwriter is set to release his very topical track, ‘Sunday Paper Politician’, this Wednesday, June 7, in time for the UK General Election.
With a sound that ironically mimics 90s alt rock and adds a touch of jazz and some bluesy slide guitar thrown in for good measure, ‘Sunday Paper Politician’ is more than just a catchy tune. It’s lyrically driven –
“Quit talking, and start saying something, quit walking, and start going somewhere”
and causes us to reflect on what we’re being told to believe. It’s a sobering comment on the sheeplike mentality of a lot of people, not just with regard to politics, but also in every day life situations.
‘Sunday Paper Politician’ comes ahead of Beekeeper’s upcoming album, ‘It’s A Miserable Life For Girls Who Can’t Play’, set for release at the end of this year.
‘Sunday Paper Politician’ is out on iTunes on June 7. Check out the video here:
