Few people have a better understanding about the difficulties that arise between socioeconomic classes than the Brits. There’s a reason George Bernard Shaw also founded the London School of Economics.
John Sterry (a.k.a. BILLIONAIRE) is the latest London artist to offer his take on class struggle and what it means for individuals overstepping society’s lines. “Poverty Line” meshes a lo-fi sound with a dark message, a combination that makes for a double whammy when the chorus hits. Lines like “Nobody will every love you when you’re at the poverty line” may be blunt, but the song’s minimalist, brooding sound is the perfect vehicle to deliver this kind of message.
