Out 4th October
We're extremely fortunate to be able to bring you an exclusive music review from Malta's headline band Airport Impressions. Playing to tens of thousands of people and winning the national Battle of the Bands has rocketed this great act into international stardom. Their new single is out next month and it's a real classic already. Written to celebrate the love between people who support each other, people who maintain a stable energy in our lives, the track is called Standing There. Life is difficult and for those who dive head first into theirs, getting lost or weathered down takes a supporting lift from friends and family who care.
The music starts with a wailing note which becomes cushioning for a guitar melody. A plucked chord brings a place for the lyrics to sit and they fall in line almost straight away. Storyline lyrics create an image in our mind of a beacon, someone we can rely on to inspire us and move us forward. A progression builds, drums add new perspectives of tempo as they evolve and journey to reach a quick stepping rock beat. A great couple of lines makes up a simple chorus while the melody of the words twirls around and around in self-similar verses.
The passion of the track builds with each bar and when it's over we feel a lot higher than before. A mood lifter and a great sing-a-long number, Standing There by Airport Impressions is well worth a listen.
