Preston’s Alt Rock Boys, The Empire Police are back with their first single of 2020. And what a banger it is. ‘Real Life’ sounds almost effortless, the boys create one rock sensation after another. The song embodies the frustration felt when left to our own devices for too long, something that is apt given the current lockdown situation. Lead singer Jordao’s vocals power the message home, with a chorus that will echo around your head for many months to come.
Speaking about the track, Jordao said “It’s a song about obsessing over your shortcomings, the idea that whilst you’re wasting time panicking about where you want to be and how you’re going to get there, real life is just passing you by”.
The Empire Police are Jordao Bassa (Lead Vocals), Tom Hale (Lead Guitar), George Jacques (Bass Guitar) and Harry Smith (Drums). The boys have gained huge support slots of the last two years, gigging alongside Twisted Wheel, Jordan Allen, The Hubbards, The Sherlocks and Trampoline.
We can only hope for some more gigs after lockdown!
