Inner Child by Lethia’s Natorium: Review
“The Angry Ukulele Lady” Pena Hughes-John returns with a new moniker Lethia’s Natorium looking for her inner child in the new single, Inner Child.
Growing up in a fast-paced mundane world, we slowly lose the touch with our inner child and become “bound by invisible chains” as the song describes. Conforming to the norms of a society where the grind of living from paycheck to paycheck is glorified, it kills our soul one day at a time. We need to get in touch with our inner child to break free of this chain but often it’s gone too far.
“Somewhere along the line
We’ve lost our Inner Child
The one full of wonder
Who at times would go so wild
Break through the mundane
And get through to that Inner Child
They’ve been gone a while”
Although it was primarily written with ukulele, the ukulele was swapped for Josh Elliott’s electrifying guitars. The guitar has a mean crunchy tone with a gothic edge to it. In combination with Pena’s energetic relentless vocals, one might describe it as symphonic goth punk. The guitar is in the driving seat of the song, but it’s Pena’s unconventional vocal style that’s really the x-factor. She has that attitude in her singing on top of the catchy vocal melodies that makes it instantly captivating. The guitar riffs, the relentless drumming, Pena’s dynamic vocals, the ending guitar solo everything sounds just right and well placed. Excellent composition and electrifying delivery!
