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?
'Very Very Long Time' with it's weird plonky carnival feel, has Naomi Black on female lead, singing about an all-time favourite theme – frustrating, soul-destroying Unrequited Love.
In this song we step inside the mind of a woman who is waiting patiently for the object of her love to be co-joined with her.
She's crying, she' burning up. The haunting repeated lyrics song 'but my wait will end, time is my friend' hints at a futile pointlessness as her thoughts loop and loop in a downward spiral. A repeated whistle is placed inside the song to help wake her up, give her an alarm bell. But it doesn't work, she's stuck in a never-ending carnival of self-deception.
She is waiting for her life to start but by the end of the song you get the sad sense that she's going to be waiting forever. Or not, will her commitment to love bring her a happy ending?
