We're sharing insights from the songs on our new album 'Rainbow Coloured Dynamite'. What are the songs about? Where did the songs come from?
Our next feature song is: 'Maybe Baby' – track 3 on the album.
This is a heart-felt break-up and get-back-together song. Being in a band is exactly like being in a marriage. A few years ago our band broke up for a whole year – don't worry, being apart could not last. Some people are meant to be together. This song is special to us because it formed part of a ceremony of reunion.
Our family are close so the temporary break up of the band was felt wider than just us. At the end of that year, they travelled from different places in Australia – Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne – to the property of Gypsy Hill Records in Hobart. We'd invited them for a celebration. Everyone was expecting something like a wedding vow renewal to mark a new era of what was to become The Neo Now.
The party was rolling along when suddenly we gathered everyone together as an audience in front of our stage. We took our places on the stage and our instruments. We didn't speak but simply sang this song, eyes locked on each other, choking back the tears. We don't know if anyone really understood what we were singing or what this moment meant but we knew. (It certainly wasn't what anyone was expecting).
This song is about saying sorry, I messed up. I left your world but I miss your love and I just want to come home. Please forgive me. Please help me to find a way back to you, find a way past the pain and hurt. I hope you notice the change in me. Please, be back here beside me.
