News: Banfi Announces Second Album ‘Colour Waits In The Dark’

Gower-based Banfi have announced their upcoming new album “Colour Waits in the Dark” and released two tracks ‘So Bright’ and ‘Always Goodbye’.

The album is entirely self-produced by Banfi who says:

“Time and natural landscapes in relation to how I feel… I’m just trying to weave these things together for the listener… love and the passing of love among ancient things.  Time and love entwined with the blood in the sky blessing my heart and the shells down on the beach that will go on sighing without me.  I’ve tried to voice a kind of void-fear amongst hope… John Keats’ gravestone (“Here lies one whose name was writ in water”) evokes a dread of time leaving each moment behind in a centreless dark, like goodbyes written on pages that’ll one day float away.

But then there are no real grounds for believing that an afterlife, or lack of one, is any more eternal or real than the fact that you have once existed and always will have, forever in the past.  We tend to project our linear view of time onto death, and maybe that’s a mistaken view of the world.  For me, these answerless trails of thought create a flowing, bird-in-the-wind feeling of surrender to the force of time that I’ve tried to capture”.

“Colour Waits in the Dark” releases on the 22nd of May, 2020.
