“When This is Over” is a song written by singer/songwriter/musician Liam Sullivan from Leeds, England written while in lock down during COVID-19. The track is a melodic prelude to times after the pandemic where society can all regroup, recharge, and live life boundless and free of four corners. The lyrics sing: maybe someday when this is over / we can sit out in the sun / maybe someday when this is over / we will embrace everyone / maybe someday when this is all over / we will share a beer / maybe someday when this is all over / we will see what happened here. The guitar driven Alternative Rock song has a melody that is so infectious that it will stay with you once you stop listening while Sullivan’s voice is so mellow and rich that it creates a quality that the song ceases to have an expiration date. And with Folk-Rock elements intwined throughout the track, a hook emerges that is surprisingly nostalgic and modern. Sullivan is harkening the formation of Folk-Rock music of the past and marrying it with an Alternative-Rock core beat. When This is Over’s melody evolves but stays genuine. In just three minutes, a listener is awakened and hit with a dose of optimism and hope. This would be a great centerpiece to a wonderful collection of music – we shall wait and see!
