You Lived Here Like a Tenant by Lethia’s Natorium: Review
A standout track from Lethia’s Natorium is “You Lived Here Like a Tenant”, which offers a distinctive sound with retro pop appeal. The London-based project, which made its debut at The Bedford River Festival in July, is led by Pena Hughes-moving John’s songwriting. “You Lived Here Like a Tenant” is one of the many excellent tracks on the project’s album named Tenant.
A lively sound with vintage 60s and 70s feel is led by upbeat, choppy drum beats and enhanced piano notes. A sound that strikes a balance between serene nostalgia and forceful decisiveness. Furthermore, the bluesy and happy guitar solo brightened the mood of the song and the vocal work is satisfactory in this song.
Pena’s (singer/songwriter) ‘Lethia’s Natorium’ band is made up of session musicians. The band’s influences are No Doubt, The Smiths, Toyah, and many more. The band was formed very recently and as a new band, they have performed in a few places. Before ‘Lethia’s Natorium’ it was one of Pena’s studio projects which were called ‘The Angry Ukelele Lady”. Pena gained the confidence to emerge from the shadows and into the spotlight as ‘Lethia’s Natorium’ after receiving positive feedback on ‘The Angry Ukulele Lady.’
The lyrics for “You lived here like a tenant” is about the earth and human beings and how humans are causing all the destruction and climate change. She brought out the topic very interestingly. All there is left to say is that the production of this song could be much better, but the gritty sound quality adds character to the track “You Lived Here Like a Tenant”.
