17 Million by Megawaves

Original Song

This is a song we wrote about the trajectory 2020 took, from decreased freedoms to increased intolerance. We wrote and recorded ’17 Million’ because we felt trapped in a country at a highly concerning time, whilst civil liberties were being stripped away with a total lack of transparency.
This is a song about feeling increasingly disenfranchised, the 17 million of the country who believed Britain was better in Europe, and the other 17 million who felt it was time to head in another direction, and how Brexit, COVID and deep social inequality all came together in 2020 revealing a portrait of a country more polarised than ever before.
