There will be, at some time in the future, a genre redefinition which gathers as a new sub-genre all the songs inspired by isolation, social distancing, working from home and fear of a highly contagious and deadly virus. ‘Meanwhile in Winnsboro’ is Sofia Talvik’s contribution.
As she says “I wrote this song without prejudice or judgement. It is merely a reflection of the situation I have found myself in, being on tour in a different country, far away from my family, watching news about people hoarding toilet paper and food like there is no tomorrow. A small testament to the times.” It was written in her own lockdown, deep in the heart of Texas.
