Here is a typically upbeat and melodic new single from Shred Kelly. The time-lapse video tells the story of a young family as time passes by all too quickly. It was inspired by singer/songwriter Tim Newton’s father, imagining him singing the lines to Tim’s mother and looking back on the life they’d built together. It’s a song of love: “Days are passing by, gone are the years of my youth // Weaker is my heart now, stronger is my love for you // You are the one that kept me on my feet all this time // But I’ll be gone tomorrow, I’ll see you in the next life.” The sentiment is direct, powerful and inspiring. Taken from the excellent, well-received 2020 album ‘Like a Rising Sun’, ‘Take Me Home’ is an uplifting, foot-tapping slice of Canadian folk-rock. The fifth album from Shred Kelly, ‘Like a Rising Sun’ is full of energy and possibly the best showcase of their dynamic sound yet. Throughout February, Shred Kelly have been playing a ‘virtual tour’ of Canadian folk festivals; check their website for details of remaining dates here. Check this out.
