Blink of an Eye is a song inspired by my dear uncle Paul, who was recently diagnosed with a serious illness. I wanted to write something for him and I was inspired by the speech he made at his 40th wedding anniversary, a beautiful declaration of loving gratitude to his family. I wrote this song in response to those words. “40 years of my life in the blink of an eye”.
This song is taken from the Time Elastic album. Here’s a stripped back live version we recorded at Tim Bidwell’s Clockwork Owl studio in Brighton, where the album was made.
