‘Four Inch Screen’ is the 2nd single from rising folk star Fabian Holland and taken from his highly acclaimed 2nd album ‘A Day Like Tomorrow’ which was one of our Featured Albums of the Month in April this year (read the review here).
In this song Holland talks of those who spend much of their time living their lives through a mobile phone. Recording gigs, events and holidays to the point where its subjective that they’ve actually seen any of these things because there viewing it all through a four inch screen. We seem to have become emotionally detached from our surroundings whilst we make every effort to capture the moment for posterity rather than enjoy the moment here and now.
