Suffolk based singer-songwriter Alfie Indra has recently inked a deal with indie record label Keep Me Young, which is where we've seen him shift his music from mellow acoustic songs to explore more upbeat groovy tracks. His latest release "Cool People" is a reflection of this change which came about through a collaboration with producer George Fitzgibbon. "Cool People" is that tune for your high school days or to remind you of them.
Indra shares "Cool People is about those judgmental people at school who make you feel bad about yourself. You know they're shallow but on some level you still want to impress them. You get caught in the bubble of your school and make friendships based on social status. Since we've left it all seems a bit pointless and I feel like I've missed out on forming some genuine relationships with people I'd probably have really connected with but didn't because I wanted to maintain popularity. Like with all my songs, I've tried to write it on two levels. I hope that people will be able to dance and sing along to it, but also listen to the lyrics and feel something more." Sonically "Cool People" shines with 80s synths and progressive rhythms, lyrically it might get you thinking. Enjoy and give it a listen.
