Wings Of Desire takes a mindful approach with their new single “Be Here Now,” an alternative canvass sprayed with ambient rock hues and krautrock shades that deliver an explosive sonic punch. With its billowing riffs, “Be Here Now” elevates its listeners into a dreamy mental spectrum where the duo reminds us of the mind-soothing art of practicing mindfulness. Enjoy:
On the new single, the duo commented: “‘Be Here Now’ is a song about being exactly where you’re supposed to be. Being present means that instead of being focused on what happened to you yesterday or what could happen tomorrow, you are simply here, now. No one wants to be stuck on autopilot, it’s not good for the soul. As humans we need to be aware of the automatic actions and reactions we have become accustomed to, and find a place of clarity and calm. The present moment offers peace, it gives us space to transcend.
Ram Dass first coined the term ‘Be Here Now’ in 1971, but the intention is infinite. You can feel completely in control yet have absolutely no control over your destiny, and that is a strange sensation to get used to. It goes against everything we’ve been taught in Western civilisation, but once you embrace freedom, the universe becomes your oyster.”
