‘Fly’ is the liberating soft-rock anthem from Canadian songwriter Lisa Froment. It was written for the artist’s young children, although this uplifting track can be used to nurture any listener’s inner child.
The opening to this optimistic track is a gradual one, with trickling guitar strings, subtle drum beats and spaced-out piano notes, over which Froment introduces the first hints of self-doubt and uncertainty in a dusky vocal. As we hear, “Somebody, somewhere, hear me sing, / I don’t think I’ll make another day.” However, all sense of negativity is swiftly swept away by the resplendent chorus that’s pivoted on jovial pop-rock rhythms and bombastic melodies; as such, one can’t help but we filled with the aura of hope.
Froment‘s parental message continues right throughout ‘Fly’, although one moment that we find especially touching comes in around the 2:30 minute mark in which the artist sweetly sings, “I believe in you, / Pretty soul who wants to fly.” This statement launches into the song’s cinematic crescendo where all the instruments energetically work together to drive the track home.
If you’re someone who has been doubting yourself lately or you have a loved one in mind that could use a pick-me-up, then listening to Lisa Froment‘s ‘Fly’ isn’t a bad place to start.
