Eco-conscious rocker Andrew Thomases lays bear his feelings on climate change in his toe-tapping new single ‘Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone?’
With ominous lyrics like “Tipping point is right before us”, “we must save our only planet”, and “Grandkids, they deserve to enjoy it” Andrew Thomases is pulling no punches when it comes to driving home the importance of eco-consciousness on his new single ‘Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone‘.
Thomases pairs this dramatic lyricism with 90s style soft-rock beats which hark back to a simpler time when bands like Eels mesmerised us with their own brand of lighter psych-rock.
Putting the lyrics to one side for the moment, the thumping beat and jangling guitars are certainly enough to keep you interested. Bass rhythms and funky tones keep the whole thing chugging along at an enjoyable pace.
Talking about his new single and the messaging behind it, Thomases said:
A number of my songs reflect my beliefs about our role in the world and society, and about the problems that face us todayandrew thomases
There’s undoubtedly been a shift, in certain musical and wider art circles, with more eco and societal conscious themes coming to the fore.
You only have to look outside your window in the UK at the moment or go on social media for 10 minutes to see things like Insulate Britain protestors blocking streets. And I’m sure I don’t have to remind anyone in the capital about the impact of groups like Extinction Rebellion.
But, while those guerrilla-type eco-freedom fighters have their place in society, we certainly think there’s more room for statements like the one Thomases is making on ‘Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone’ in indie music.
