We're moved to share with you insights from the songs on our new album 'Rainbow Coloured Dynamite'. What are the songs about? Where did the songs come from?
First up in this article series, is a grooving song called 'Fly'. It's seriously one of our favourites on the album – many a summer evening we danced to it full bore on A-list repeat rotation in our water-fountain mood-lit sun room at Gypsy Hill studios.
Our fans are telling us that off the album they love 'Cab Ride' and 'Rainbow Coloured Dynamite' but we do love, love, love 'Fly'.
The image that comes to our minds – in prepping for the video clip – is of a guy surfing on his own coffin, it's like he's in between worlds, getting ready to return to the sky. To fly like dream flying, like the way he flew through his life, with a sense of freedom and lightness and love but with a driving sense of commitment to doing what was the right thing to do throughout his whole life – he never walked away from his duty, even if at times that duty was experienced as a burden.
But the burden of leaving loved ones behind haunts his departure from this world. The song's key message is 'it's all about how they remember you'. And there at his funeral are all the people who loved him, who were influenced by his strong values and who live on with that same commitment. We fly.
