Moving New Lockdown song from Year 12
6th Form students rise to Lockdown with recording made remotely about facing fears.
Lyrics, melody and Lead Vocal by Charlie Mossman, other tracks by Cayden Hall as part of their composition coursework. Guest featuring Kaya Mason.
Much of this was composed/recorded in the second lockdown, but the lyrics are about the first. In song is in three parts - I miss them all; followed by the 2020 section - try and listen 0.57 to 1.50 without it getting stuck in your head!; then finally a coda section about facing fears and overcoming them.
Barnhill clearly has seriously talented music students. Listen with good headphones on to get a feel of the mastered tracks. https://soundcloud.com/user-554617772-377592381/2020-mastered/s-TFBJkIW5GFT
This is what some of our students had to say:
"I like that it's about 2020 and it fits the year, as at the start of 2020 we all had high hopes and then Covid 19 started, the tune shows this as the beat goes slower"
