BLACKBYRD RELEASE NEW HIT SINGLE YOU SHOOT ME DOWN
Following on yet another successful number one hit single, “Better in the Morning”, from BlackByrd’s second album HOME, comes BlackByrd’s third stunning single release called “You Shoot Me Down” from this new collection. Destined to be yet another number one hit single (seven in a row so far) for seven-time SAMA nominated BlackByrd, this beautiful ballad offers its listeners something different and a change of pace, compared to the feel-good up-beat tracks previously associated with the band. This soulful, heartfelt ballad, beautifully delivered by extraordinary lead vocalist Tarryn Lamb, describes the dismay of having someone constantly rejecting your thoughts and opinions. The depth of emotion is clear for listeners to feel from this track, sympathetically produced by SAMA-winner Mark Beling, and magnificently presented by the three talented young ladies of BlackByrd. “You Shoot Me Down describes the point where a person despairs of reasoning with another person. It’s about wanting the person to understand how their words affect others and can be very hurtful”, explains band member Axene. “You Shoot Me Down” displays the collaborative creative talents of Tarryn, Tamsyn and Axene writing together for the first time, as they continue to develop from strength to strength. Their combined song-writing skills add a wonderful new dimension to the song as well as the entire album, HOME.
Beautiful BlackByrd engenders goodwill everywhere, with their warm engaging personalities and appealing music. They have certainly brought a breath of fresh air to the South African music scene.
