“What’s a few months or a year to fix what’s really broken here ?” ask Side Pony – who are Alice Wallace and Caitlin Cannon on their new single ‘Lucky Break’, and it’s hard to see this as anything but a Covid song. Especially when the duo remind us that “nobody’s getting ahead, nobody’s missing out, we’re no better than anyone else right here in the right now.” Truth.
Alice Wallace and Caitlin Cannon, incidentally, had their own “lucky break” when they found themselves sitting next to each other at a songwriter’s round in 2018. But for that act of serendipity would Side Pony have come into existence? Probably not – some lucky break.
