AKA George is back with his electrifying new single "Bad For You", and although it's about relentless desire in relationships, it can also be seen as a coronavirus lockdown anthem.
East London multi-instrumentalist AKA George teams fuzzy guitar melodies with his alluring vocals, as he predicts "You think I'm getting a hold on you / I make your eyes go red and your skin turn blue" - an apt line to accompany the current coronavirus pandemic.
After the opening verse, AKA George increases the voltage and the volume, unleashing his rock-infused vocals over a punchy beat that hits harder than a heavyweight boxer trying to secure his belt.
The electrifying track projects the tunnel vision scope of lust, focusing on the contagious elements of wanting someone you can't have, or shouldn't have due to the toxicity of the relationship. The lyrics are undoubtedly fitting for the current coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, and could be perceived as a lighthearted letter from the virus itself.
It also arrives with a homemade video that sees AKA George offering some advice about self-isolating.
He says of his new single, "I was craving it like a drug. I knew it was bad for me, but I was never going to stop. I’m one of those people who goes all in. I don’t like half measures, if I’m doing something, I’m doing it 100%. That can cause problems sometimes - you can get in too deep and things become messy, especially in a relationship - but I wouldn’t have it any other way."
