Crisp and clean piano play and guitar works guide us into a riff-strong and partly acoustic alt-rock anthem from emotive songwriter Harry K, as the melodically seductive and poignant Angels in Lockdown pours through. Musically nostalgic, comforting in its simplicity yet fresh in its leading riff and the interesting choice of a distant keys/synth echo of the same tune, Angels in Lockdown goes on to weave in a simple, descending verse melody – progressing through quickly relatable, relevant lyrics, towards the ultimate resolve of the hook. Here things brighten up, and indeed the latter half of the song furthers this optimism – the words Angels in Lockdown ring out with colour and possibility, positivity, and this makes all the difference.
Harry K is a creative rock artist and a songwriter from Australia. His style is smooth yet energetic and passionate when it needs to be. That makes his songs enjoyable to a wide range of rock music lovers. Especially for the new rock music listeners . The smooth melody and his deep voice makes the amazing lyrics feel closer to us. Something of a pop-rock anthem for the times, with a yesteryear feel that would sit right at home in a nineties set-list, the single offers recognisable vocals of clear identity, and introduces a strong melodic progression from Harry K
that undoubtedly shines light on a songwriter at the top of his game.
Broadly relatable, painful then promising, topical yet personal all at once, and musically hypnotic as it softly embraces the listener – Angels in Lockdown is an easy indie hit. An immediately memorable riff is often the key to a great rock ballad or anthem, and Angels in Lockdown has it down. Really nicely done.
