Song: Blue Skies
Artist/Group: The Feelers
The Feelers are a kiwi rock band that have been around for a while now, and have some great songs. Blue Skies came out this summer and although I wasn’t a huge fan at first, it’s really grown on me and since it’s on the radio all the time it’s definately come to represent the summer of ’09 for me (even though we haven’t seen as many blue skies as usual, yet!).
You’re lookin’ outta your mind’s eye
And pretty soon you will realise
There’s nothin’ like takin’ the long way home
To finally see the light
I really like the laidback feel of this song, and also the extra element that the polynesian drums bring in. It sounds really genuine and fun and – summery!
Take me away
Just a moment away
You can listen to the song in their new video on Youtube – filmed in Raro, it’s pretty cool. The beginning reminds me of the MV for I’m Yours by Jason Mraz. And yup, that’s Andy from Zed in the vid too 😀
Thanks NZ on Air!
