Continuing our series in which 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: 'Fourth of July' - track 6 on the Rainbow Coloured Dynamite album.
Have you ever met someone who is a living motivation in everything they do? All you have to do is get one look at them to know they have a fire in their belly to do something in this world. What's worth doing is worth doing well. Or to the best of our abilities and resources we are given at any one point. We play to the hand we are dealt with in this world. The edge in the game is what goes on between your ears: your positive thinking; your ignoring what is and focusing on what can be; your having experienced enough contrast to finally know what you truly want and take steady steps every day to get there.
The motivation in life is an inner thing. What if you could bottle it? What if you could capture it in a photo? Once you meet someone like that you wonder how anyone could ever live a life that is without motivation. You wonder why people stay in the places they've found themselves in when the world they've created needs a shake up. And the only person to make that happen is you. How much same old, same old can you bear? How sick and tired of things do you need to be before you'll get motivated to change? Change is the only constant in life, you're either on the bus or you're left at the bus stop. What can you do today to get a rocket in your pocket? Open your heart and what do you see, always a victim of your mentality.
The Fourth of July was the first video release for The Neo Now – it was fun to make and hey we did the best we could with the resources we had at the time. It's a catchy song people tell us. We released the video on...yes, the Fourth of July in 2016. We didn't promote it a great deal and found out that we knew a couple of hundred people, nice feedback from everyone, so encouraging, thank-you thank-you. Still waiting for Hobart FM to play that one (hint, hint Craig) – we're have great radio play with that wonderfully supportive station.
