On her latest single, singer-songwriter Liz Bills looks into one of the biggest addictions facing the population. No, I'm not speaking of drugs or alcohol. It's that thing in your hand, on your lap, or your desk. That bright screen that connects you to the rest of the world.
In her single “Wi-Hi", Liz sings about being addicted to the internet. She takes a look at the world as a whole when she sings "everybody's doing it, everybody's Wi-Hi". With the state of the world right now where more and more things are being done virtually, this is great timing for the track. People are becoming more and more reliant on their screens for everyday life.
More than just about everyone's use of the internet, this song touches on the addiction and mental health issues that come along with it. It forces the listener to look at their own usage and think about if they have been disconnected from themselves. Have we lost ourselves in the vastness of the internet? Virtual shows, working from home, doctor visits, and homeschool are just some of the ways people are spending more time behind screens than ever before.
She is joined by her six-piece roots band, The Change, on this track. There is an upbeat guitar rhythm in the music, along with a deep bass groove. The positive vibe in the music is a neat contrast to a more serious subject. The eclectic band members combine their talents to create a toe-tapping tune.
Sit back and wonder “Does life even happen if you don’t go Facebook live”?
