Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Davie Furey. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his way of composing music.
I immediately liked the atmosphere created by this song. The musical arrangements made me think of U2 while the vocal interpretation and melody reminded me of Bruce Springsteen.
Very interesting influences expertly mixed together in a perfect musical blend.
“History” manages to move and speaks directly to the heart and soul of the listener and when in the chorus Davie Furey sings “it’s our time to make a better hystory” makes us think that it is really time to wake up and try to change this world that it is having such a difficult time.
I really liked the ending with a typical Irish melody to close this beautiful song.
Surely we are faced with a great singer-songwriter who proves to have a lot of compositional experience behind him.
Go and listen to his music, it worth it!
History is Davie Furey’s Single Out Now!
Mature and Unique!
Irish singer-songwriter Davie Furey’s new single, “History,” is an anthemic slice of Celtic-folk-infused, synth-bolstered jangle pop begging to echo off arena walls. It’s a sound as big as its carpe-diem call to action:
Stand up straight with your eyes wide open … If you’re not with me get outta the way … Now’s not the time for hard luck stories, now’s not the time for former glories … It’s our time, to make a bit of history
Initially, Furey says, the song was written for his friend, Irish boxer Michael Conlan—the fiery former olympian who just challenged for the WBA world featherweight title.
“While I was working on ‘History,’ Michael was in my head,” Furey says. “To have him fighting for the world-championship belt, I thought it was something to be proud of. But as songs often do, it evolved into something much broader than that. It came to represent the last two years, which have, of course, been difficult—covid has changed us, changed our attitudes. A lot of people were on their own during the pandemic, and when you’re alone you have a lot of time to think. People picked up new hobbies. They reconnected with their families, their pets and nature. Whether that persists as we get back into the normality of life, I don’t know. But for a lot of people, the experience changed the course of their lives. And that’s what ‘History’ reflects upon—the restoration of our lives.”
