Every other radio station rotates the same forty songs about the same sort of heartbreak. It wasn’t too long ago that artists’ music spoke to something more. The Beatles were the voice of a generation. Ella Fitzgerald was a voice for equality. Now, heavy ska band the UK Feds is a voice for everyone: everyday issues faced by the everyday man and woman. Here are three ways that the UK Feds speak out through their music.
1. Their hometown influences their sound.
Birmingham, UK, is saturated with the ska and punk sounds that characterize the UK Feds. Growing up in Birmingham, Jon Kings, Ryan Kings, Ricky-Lee Cooper, and Mikey Rainsford were raised on the music that would later influence their heavy ska sound.
2. They write about what they see going on in the world.
The UK Feds don’t write songs about lost celebrity lovers or chasing elusive dreams. Rather, the lyrics they pen preach to the everyday citizen about what they see going on in the world around them. They write about issues such as unemployment, low wages, and lack of hope.
3. Their studio music is made to sound live.
What’s more personal than an intimate live show? This is the sound that the UK Feds hope to capture on their upcoming album. That raw, energetic sound can be heard on the band’s recently released EP Livin In Anger.
The UK Feds are a voice for the here and now. Their raw, energetic sound is what is going to make heavy ska last.
