It can be really frustrating when you make plans with someone and they constantly refuse to keep their promises. You feel disappointed – and sometimes you even start to question why you bother trying to maintain the relationship at all.
The lyrics of Bel Kil’s second single, Backup Plan, are about ignoring someone who has let you down and finding your own backup plan. Whether that means finding new friends who are always there for you or deciding to go it alone, the song encourages you to never give up on yourself.
Backup Plan sounds bright and poppy, contrasting beautifully with the more emotive lyrics. The song builds to a cinematic climax while still relying on classic guitar and bass lines. Bel’s willingness to experiment pays off, and the result is something that’s both radio-friendly and meaningful.
