A Million Years
Psychedelic funky reggae warriors Thomas and Devaki had been playing music together since their teens. Enjoying a flash music career that rubbed shoulders with icons such as Jon Anderson from Yes, and Jon and Vangelis, plus Buffy St. Marie including many others, these professional class musicians rock n rolled with the best of them. Life has many twists and turns, and indeed it did for this pair. Settling down to have a family became a priority for both of them so the music became a fond memory. That was just for a time though, and once they had done their duty it was only right to blow the dust off the guitars. Teaming up with bass player Alex Barrett, the guys now known as Stunflower release their brand new sound and single.
It starts on a classic guitar wail. Bottle-necked notes flow like a twinkling river and vocals lap the shores. Fragile melody spills over in tangents and splashy harmonics, organs and guitar build up and roll down in plentiful gushes of sound. It points at a deep sadness, a sense of eternal woe built up over the course of many millennia. A dreamy melancholy of the soul extends like a hologram into the realms of infinite sorrow, it's a moving and sombre number that also has a sense of hope. Maybe the sad times are all but over? Is this a moment of change in life, where the dreams of brokenness come to an end? It's a beautiful song, full of human feeling and musical moments of clarity.
