There’s a truly charming vibe emanating from the latest tune by Liam Hillyer. Following on from amassing over 30k streams on Spotify with his previous works, Hillyer has been busy laying a solid foundation for when the world reopens.
After a year of isolation, working from home, and weekends spent in the room where you don’t work every other day of the week Hillyer, like many of us, is ready to get back down the pub.
Written as a tribute to that long-awaited reunion between his friends at his local, Hillyer has captured the feelings of the nation.
You may be forgiven for thinking that a song created about the struggles of lockdown and the seemingly eternal wait for it to be over would be a sombre affair. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The track rattles into life with chugging percussion before the shimmering guitars come through and lift the whole thing up.
Hillyer’s Widnes accent isn’t defeated throughout the track which provides a real Paul Heaton come Lee Mavers tone which is a northerner’s dream. ‘Where I’m Supposed To Be’ is a perfectly measured piece of jangle-pop.
Showcasing a knowledge of message and coolness of delivery which is rarely seen in an artist of such young years. Hillyer has demonstrated he’s ready for the off when the chequered flag finally waves in an end to lockdown.
‘Where I’m Supposed To Be’ is available to stream everywhere now.
