Aforest – Higher Ground

Fresh song by Aforest

Artist about the track:

A large amount of the inspiration behind our music reflects on the struggles around balancing working life with creative passions and what it is like growing up as a young creative surrounded by technology and consumerism. This led to us becoming interested in films and tv series like Black Mirror and Blade Runner we found the exaggerated themes very relatable and used their stories and aesthetic as a writing tool to give our songs a deeper relatable meaning and more informed production ideas. Our musical influences are very eclectic, we are frequently drawn to older artists such as Neil Young, John Martyn, Steely Dan & Talking heads for inspiration. Some contemporary artists we are into include: Jadu Heart, Jai Paul and Westerman.

LYRICS:

It’s funny how you fill
These thoughts inside
From Higher ground I realise

Wishing for a time never had before
A higher sound
A compromise

Don’t go outside
Here is everything we need
We’ll fall behind

Is money how you build
These walls to hide
From Higher Ground I realise

Wishing for a time never had before
A higher sound
A compromise

Don’t go outside
Here is everything we need
We’ll fall behind

I can’t stay here
I won’t wait here

Don’t go outside
We’ll fall behind
