Continuing his exploration of down tempo alt-pop. ‘The Rebound Effect’ invites the listener to share a dreamscape. In referencing the doomsday clock, climate change and mankind’s exploitation of the world’s natural resources; the song reveals glimpses of a post apocalyptic void.
“The sun cries ready to explode
It’s on over load near the end of…
The cliff fades, weathers and corrodes
From a land we stole and hold
The steel cracked solace of your soul
As you lose control of it all…”
Fintan wrote the song after a dream about the end of the world. “The song is about Karma really, that the earth is going to kill everyone including itself, because of our actions. In a way we are killing ourselves with our own laziness & greed.” ‘The Rebound Effect’ is dark, sultry and mocking in its appraisal of mankind’s misdeeds and displays Fintan’s ability to capture imagery in his song writing.
