Are your ears ready for some catchy indie pop that is both feel-good and pro-human rights? Rock the Pigeon is pleased to introduce our readership to Greg Holden and his excellent ability to write a song that is both catchy musically and has a strong positive message. Although he is based in the United Kingdom his song “The Power Shift” is about the inequalities many Americans are facing right now because of the current political system and climate. The song can easily become an anthem for anyone that is feeling down due to the systematic oppression of America. Musically, the song is an ear worm that anyone will want to sing along to. The instrumentation is perfect in creating a vibe that inspires people to stand together and rise up and fight the system! This might just become your new favorite song:

 

“I was trying to manifest a collective call on the, for lack of a better word, bullshit. I think it’s important that when someone is lying to you, you call them out,” says Holden, who often uses his inherently rebellious spirit to push back against the status quo. “I was getting tired of screaming into the social media echo chamber and really wanted to put my frustrations into a song that wasn’t so toxic. I’m under no illusion that this is just a song, but it’s better than a tweet.”  – Greg Holden
