Reliably informed

Drawing inspiration from his heroes, who range from Leonard Cohen to Serge Gainsbourg, Simon Taylor adds a somewhat rockier offering to his introspective sound. Whilst warning listeners of the catastrophic effects of karma – going as far as to compare it to an “atom bomb” – a carefully curated balance between electric and acoustic guitar brings a unique feel to the song, matching the distinctive message presented.

The structured yet seemingly angry drums have the listener tapping their foot to the beat, whilst synonymously adding to the frustration seeping through the lyrics. Aided by soulful backing vocals, Judgement Day blatantly points out the consequences of anti-social behaviour, forewarning the listener that one day, we will all be judged by karma.
