Nova Sunshine

September 20, 2021 9:31 PM

I'm working on this album concept where the earth's orbit has changed bringing cataclysmic changes to the the environment and season, ultimately bring about the extinction of mankind. This is sort of a nod to climate change but with a more dramatic, science-fiction narrative to emphasize and accelerate the outcome...

This song in particular is a coming of age story about a young man born late in this saga, when the conclusion is almost inevitable. He meets a girl named Nova and relates being in her presence to some thing similar to being on the surface of the planet, torched and scaled by intense sunshine and pressure. It's a metaphor. He's never been on the surface.

Something about this reminds me of a Nobuo Uematsu leitmotif. It was a good listen!

Thanks ignignokt. I'll take it. I'd love to relive that one week I discovered final fantasy VII.
