Bandits on the Run recently released the single, ‘Now Is The Time‘. The uplifting song is about how actions taken now will lead to a better and brighter future. Hope is never truly lost. I can certainly get behind that message. Likewise, it’s also a message many people need to hear. ‘Now Is The Time‘ is a powerful song that takes hold of you. It not only give you motivation but lift your spirits.
I was completely caught off guard by the compassionate, thoughtful, and poignant lyrics. The cello holds so much emotion which gives ‘Now Is The Time‘ complexity. The vocals bring the listener in from the start with the opening lyric beckoning the listener to “Come a little ways and sing a little prayer with me“. ‘Now Is The Time‘ is a song you will certainly listen to and cherish for the rest of your life. Here’s what Sydney Shepherd had to say about ‘Now Is The Time‘:
It’s a protest song, it’s a celebration song, it’s a shout from the mountaintops – an urgent message to live in the present and to trust that the actions of today can change and shape the outcome of our future,” cellist Sydney Shepherd says. “In our individual lives outside the band, we are each fiercely committed to activism and justice. ‘Now Is The Time’ is the first song of ours that combines those two forces within us.
Such a multifaceted song! I’m constantly impressed by artists such as Bandits on the Run. This is a band that put every ounce of themselves into an uplifting and powerful anthem of hope.
