It's Corona! Bury St Edmunds singer Matt Reaction releases coronavirus song, filmed around his house

The coronavirus is bringing out creativity in some, frustration in others and both, it appears, in a Bury St Edmunds musician.

Singer-songwriter Matt Reaction has recorded a 'happy hardcore' track called It's Corona! (Going Viral) and filmed a video around his house.

Matt deals with the ubiquity of the virus and having to stay inside in the song - which has been seen by more than 7,500 on his Facebok page.

"Everyone in the world will be able to identify."

Matt competed in the BurySOUND 2020 competition and was nominated for a songwriting award, despite missing out on qualifying from heat five.

"This has spurred me on to write a few new songs - one of which has been getting attention on social media recently," he said, "It's a happy hardcore track - a diversion from my usual punk/pop stuff.

"I think it's safe to say that virtually everyone in the world will be able to identify with it at the moment!"
