Red Eye

 

 

This is a song from the group Red Eye, who cover raw social, emotional and political issues, based on the foundation that every song should carry a message. This track tackles the gentrification of the Soho district of London; but it could equally apply to many areas in cities around the world where “good time cleansing” threatens to destroy the vibe and character of an area. It is depicted through the eyes and memories of an ex night worker, wanting to visit Soho one more time before it changes and “dies” forever. Together with some of the damaging social consequences of gentrification to residential areas, there are also potentially irreversible consequences to vibrant inner city areas. As rents go up, music, noise and dance restrictions increase, and rich new residents put pressure on bars and nightclubs to close. As such there is a real danger that many lively, exciting areas which have existed for years are cleansed and gentrified forever.
