As he begins to flap his dusty wings so he can fly to where he deserves to be after sheltering away where it didn’t feel quite right before, Silver Magpie ponders deeply as to why his lover is sailing so far away and not into his arms instead on ‘The Storm’.
Silver Magpie is a Guadalajara, Mexico-born solo indie rock singer-songwriter. He is a creative soul who has hidden his feelings away for too long, as he now expresses himself through his music creations, which only seek to find his true path in this rather confusing world.
”Mainly influenced by post-punk/alternative rock bands with some shoegaze/dreamy hints. I’ve always had trouble fitting in, always the weird/nerdish kid at the back of the class.” ~ Silver Magpie
You feel his underdog mentality the whole way through, as he wonders why his love doesn’t turn around and join him hand in hand in again. He is unsure about this new path they have chosen and senses that he should stay behind – even though there could be something exciting waiting for him – if he just took the chance and joined them on the current-filled sailboat.
”It took some time to redefine my sound and learn new things to deliver better music. This song is dedicated to all of those who have drifted away (sailing away) from others during this pandemic.” ~ Silver Magpie
‘The Storm‘ from the motivated Guadalajara, Mexico-born indie artist Silver Magpie, is an emotion-filled journey about the wind-swept thoughts, that are flying dramatically into his reflective mind. He wishes it was calm and easy to work out, but for now his feelings are mixed, as he only thinks about why they left him behind.
Life can take you onto many differing paths. Ultimately, its up to you to work out which way you think the elusive treasure is hidden.
