Light a Match.

I attended the Found Music Festival last weekend and interviewed the headline artists, for King & Country. To say that I was impressed is an understatement. Manila was just one stop on their Burn the Ships world tour, and I am so glad they came by.

One of the great things about working in Christian radio is meeting passionate and talented artists who make music that really speak to our souls. Here’s one that I particularly identify with – and it happens to be the title track of their newest album, Burn the Ships.

Burn the ships, cut the ties
Send a flare into the night
Say a prayer, turn the tide
Dry your tears and wave goodbye

Step into a new day
We can rise up from the dust and walk away
We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
And don’t you look back

PS – It appears that my favourite songs from the artists I’ve interviewed and watched of late have the word “burn” in them. (See my previous post on Rivers & Robots.)
