Today, it’s fair to say that social media and modern technology have invaded pretty much every aspect of our lives. It’s far too easy to become addicted to the feeling of being constantly connected – knowing that every detail of every significant event in the world is at our fingertips. For sure, this has its negatives, with terms like ‘chronically online’ being used more frequently to describe those who have gone off the deep end and fail to distinguish some of the boundaries between real life and online life. 

Lewis Poole, an indie pop rock artist from Glastonbury, UK, is making a commentary on this with his latest track Anything – but it’s important to note that he’s not guilt-tripping us. Anything is a look on the brighter side; a celebration of how your phone can be a gateway to real-life human connection and making real memories.

The song’s about people’s desire to get their next serotonin hit online & on their phones. It doesn’t matter what it is or how they get it, people just want ‘ANYTHING’ to happen,” Lewis says. “However, I don’t think it’s a bad thing and I don’t want anyone to feel guilty about it – I’m simply just pointing it out, while playing what I consider to be a fun, catchy bop!” 

Lewis has received plenty of praise for his British pop-punk sound lately, and it’s easy to see why. With his rough and ready indie rock sound, Lewis Poole will surely meet the criteria for fans of artists such as Fall Out Boy and Imagine Dragons. 

There is a lot of energy in this track, with the crashing drums and electric guitar layered with a light synth beat that keeps it lively and fun. It’s as catchy as anything, and will surely appeal to any listeners that may be loving the recent revival of 2000s-Esque pop-punk sound in music today.
