The four-piece band Sunburn is here with a new soulful and touching song titled “Bring Me the sky”
This latest single from Sunburn, touches upon the topics of aging, yearning, and pressure of unfulfilled desires. The lyrics serve as a portrait of someone wrestled with the notion of time and the waste of their lives, all the while desiring something deeper.
The song begins with a statement that proclaims carefreeness about aging but almost immediately implies a generalized sense of restlessness at feeling isolated within the circumstances of their own existence. “Rivers of gold” imagery shows an impulse for an invaluable or righteous thing to lead them through the uncertainties of life.
Throughout the song, the lyrics address the topics of loneliness and disenchantment, mentioning being lost at sea and not measuring up to one’s own standards. The chorus, caught in the cry to “don’t give me the ocean, bring me the sky”, represents the wish for a lighter and more positively orientate way of seeing the life.
The arrangement of Sunburn’s music goes along with the lyrical theme portraying a sad and powerful tone that projects the feel of the song. The emotional tonality of the lead singer and the lead guitarist’s imaginative phrases make the song more attractive and oblige listeners to the sad mood which it creates.
“Bring Me The Sky” is a moving indie ballad that delves into the heart of sorrow and loss, but while it also sheds light on the potential for salvation and regeneration. Featuring its introspective lyrics and atmospheric instrumentation, Sunburn has a mesmerizing and deeply meaningful track that will linger on for a long time.
