Totally have to tell you that I spend way more hours than I want to watching Peppa Pig, thanks to a three-year-old named Atlas, so when I read the description of STONER’s new song, The Anteroom, it was the first thing that caught my eye.
Stoner describes The Anteroom as “a very British Suicide”– A political turmoil mocking the middle classes – All told through the meta-play of a Peppa Pig episode.
Writing about the “Infantilisation of the referendum” ‘The Anteroom’ sees Stoner sequence the Brexit process as “an ill-fated balloon ride”. Layered over the sounds of seagulls, The Anteroom’s lyrics deride the “un-navigated, unmitigated rudderless dream, and the almost child-like petulance of the impatient territorialism of identity and ownership, that somehow, in the end, we will achieve and live in a distilled utopia of British values, when really it’s just regressive isolation- a waiting room of uncertainty.”
The Anteroom def gives you the happy floating feeling of slowly moving through the sky in the balloon, despite the existential crises that STONER sings about
