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: 'Will I Ever Know?' - track 9 on the album.
This is a pure pining-for-love song. It's a slow rhythmical tune featuring a whimsical flute and rolling acoustic guitar. The song is about finding true love. The singer reflects on what it feels like to be in love and asks that simple question: will I ever know? Will it be my turn one day? Am I one to love and be loved in return? Only time will tell.
Whoa, put the brakes on this world – we want to get the next cab ride out. We've been social media observers for some time now and our conclusion is that the world of Facebook has made us all a little more contrived and 'presented' than we all used to be. How can we all really get to know each other? The more we interact via social media, the more isolated we are becoming as a society. Don't get us wrong, Facebook has been great for a great many things.
One of our songs 'Will I Ever Know?' is about wondering if you'll ever find true love, the love and laughter of a soul-mate lover. But it's not just about romantic love – it can also be about the intimate love of friendship. We reflect all the time about trust and friendship. We believe in being people of our word, reliable, trustworthy – but not in a big egoic 'hey, look at how trusted we are' way, it's more about principles and old Australian values of mateship. And we always expect people around us to do the same.
One simple guideline is to do what you say you are going to do. But the social pressures around social media mean that a lot of people feel like they can't express their authentic selves. How can you build authentic trust with others and have the depth of friendship and love that completes us all when you present a smoke screen? We don't want you to ask: Will I Ever Know? We want you to know.
