Lockdown has, in many ways, accelerated our society’s addiction to social media. Spending the past year hiding indoors has meant more and more influencers have appeared, jostling for our attention every time we scroll through our newsfeeds. Conchúr White is aware of this only too well, and dives into a tongue-in-cheek commentary of our modern online world with his latest single, ‘Vocation Vacation’.
The former Silences frontman has seen the track gain well-deserved airplay from BBC 6 Music in recent weeks, and the song bristles with dry observations and cutting sarcasm as he observes the charade so many of us find ourselves taking part in every time we pick up our phones. Dancing over a hypnotic groove and delivered in brilliant, breathy vocals, the irony will not be lost on White that the single can easily be found and purchased through all of his own social media channels, and is taken from his upcoming EP, Dreamers.
