Neonfly - "Beating Hearts" (lyric video + artwork making of)

Ο δίσκος των Neonfly "The Future, Tonight"
We found a way
To fight the darkness
We found a way
To kill the pain
We took a thousand
Deadly shots of poison
And washed them
All away like rain

Kill the light all around us
Burn the candles away
Sinners gather around and pray
‘Til the morning

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Our sins don’t wash away
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We don’t need saving

We used to run around in shadows
We spent a lifetime bound in chains
But now our secrets are no longer hidden
We bear the lasting Mark of Cain
And feel no regrets!

And now I’m coming back to life
My beating heart no longer lies
And now this vessel is no longer empty

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Our sins don’t wash away
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We don’t need salvation
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
No matter what you say
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
There’s poison in our souls

Will we give in to temptation
If there’s no heaven or hell
Where are the gods of creation?
Pray they don’t take us away

And now this vessel is no longer empty
The sound of beating hearts that lose control


Δισκογραφική επιστροφή μετά από επτά χρόνια για τους Neonfly. Το νέο album και τρίτος συνολικά "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Βρετανών metallers τιτλοφορείται "The Future, Tonight" και κυκλοφόρησε προ ημερών...

Δελτίο τύπου: «"Beating Hearts" is a song about not being afraid of being yourself, and not having to justify yourself for being different. It’s a song about following your heart and accepting your choices, regardless of what certain religious groups, social conventions or other people might dictate.

It’s a song about passion, that celebrates alternative culture in all its manifestations: music, art, lifestyle, community… and it’s a song about overcoming any personal doubts you might have, and finding harmony within yourself.

For the album cover and the artwork associated with the release, Neonfly wanted to work with an artist whose artistic vision matched the general concept and the various lyrical themes used in the album. After a long search, they found Korean artist NOMA (Noh Gyeong Hwan) via his Instagram, and instantly fell in love with his work.

He graciously accepted Neonfly’s offer to work with them on the album, and to paint the portraits of the band members in his own distinctive style. The album cover and the portraits are part of his 21st Century Mona Lisa collection.

Noma explains the idea behind his collection in the following statement:

"We are one of the many organisms that coexist in this modern era. However, we are potentially just one of the many 21st century’s expandable products that may disappear at any time.

We live in a rapidly changing digital era, locked within an ever-repeating media reality that turns on and off under their direction. It is like being a lifeless pixel on a TV screen, essentially becoming one of the many tools that are used to shape and create the future.

We always hide our feelings and goals from some unknown enemy who could appear at any time. Our crooked desires, greed, and the accompanying cries of injustice are hidden behind the veil of a warm and happy face, expressing itself only in a way of our choosing.

But even when our hidden emotions are exposed, we choose to suppress and deny them, choosing instead to lock them up in a snare of reality. It is as if we were a machine, calculating the right words to say and expressions to reveal, never acknowledging or expressing our true feelings.

Unlike how the warm smile of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa from the 15th century reflects suppression, I choose to freely express our repressed and restrained desires. That might just be the self-portrait of the 21st century that we are living in
