LDN LPZ is a lively and introspective look at personal routine and modern life, with a cynical eye and a punk flair.

There is a neurotic-humble bent to the lyrical persona here, coupled with a big electric-bass riff and some punchy dynamics. The heart of pop-punk to me has always been the delta between verse and chorus energy, and the lift here is no disappointment.

The personal narrative delves into the rich tapestry of workaday routine, the love-hate relationship we have with ourselves through the lens of outside successes and self-deprivation. The role here is of an observer, seeing everything, touching nothing:

“This year’s been so dreamlike
I’ve become sad and detached
reality filtered, no feelings attached”— Gon von Zola

LDN LPZ is a lively and introspective look at personal routine and modern life, with a cynical eye and a punk flair.

Gon von Zola is a London-based Third Culture Kid with German, Swedish, Estonian and Indian roots. This song is featured on our Hi Energy playlist.
