River Mara – “Lockdown Love” music video
“Hello! How’s it going? Haven’t called me in so long. Now, I’m wondering what’s wrong with you since you went away. Feel like I haven’t been missed, did you forget I exist? Don’t waste my time, you know I can’t read your mind. Why don’t you give me a sign? Now we’re stuck inside, doesn’t it make you cry? Not being by my side?” – lyrics
‘Lockdown Love’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who shares a complicated relationship with her significant other. Apparently, she’s practically going insane trying to figure out why her companion saying he needs space, and then invites her to his place. She begins to question his love and later admits that their relationship will surely lose its flame because she’s here and he’s there.
‘Lockdown Love’ is an ode to any relationship affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The vintage-meets-contemporary tune contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Bruno Mars, Pharrell Williams, and Dua Lipa. Also, “Lockdown Love” possesses funky instrumentation flavored with a groovy electro-pop vibration. Furthermore, the song serves as a wonderful introduction to what listeners can expect to hear from River Mara in the near future.
“One day you want me to stay, the next you say ‘go away.’”
“It’s a song that you can both dance to around the house. Or reminisce about a time when you were allowed to go outside, travel, and be together with your soul mate.” – River Mara explained
