‘Running from the Rain’, the new single from Bob Fitzgerald is out today. The song is a driving country rock track and as a debut single is a fantastic introduction to the talents of Bob Fitzgerald. The opening of the song starts with the sound of rain and storms, before a gentle opening ends with the closing of a car door, and the energetic guitar kicks in. Heavy on electric guitar, and standout vocals from the artist, the song does a great job of painting a picture of trying to escape ‘the rain’, which makes for a great metaphor.
“‘Running From The Rain’ was initially inspired by a motorbike journey in which the inclement British weather loomed large in my wing mirrors, the rain seemingly chasing me no matter what. The chorus hook just came to me as I rode, I pulled over immediately, took out my iPhone and sang it straight in. The Storyline lyrics tell a universal tale of driving on searching for better times yet to come; ‘Whenever it pours down on me is when I make my way. I’m headed out where the sky’s oh so clear, turn my back on the grey. Yeah, I’ll just keep running from the rain’.”
A fine debut single, which points to great things to come from Bob Fitzgerald.
