8SNAKE – Sun
Sun is the second song of ‘Eight’ the latest album of 8SNAKE formally Francesco Fonte Band. The track represents the characteristics of the entire album very well. It’s progression goes through different genres without a hitch, creating a proper journey.
The track includes some stoner guitars but still keeps the psychedelic concept which is leading the song. The lyrics denounce religions as barriers that stop people from discovering their own spirituality and make them lose the sense of reality.
‘I want to escape my body is dying, no time to sleep, no time to be’
is a line in the song about the frenetic rhythm in which we have to throw our life to keep ourselves alive, in a system that doesn’t give us the time to analyse our existence, and real meaning of life.
A progressive Rock band based in the UK and formed in 2011. Previous releases include the debut album ‘Blue Omens’ (2011) and the EP ‘Arousal Addiction’ (2013).
