‘But Come On Now’ was the fourth single by ‘ARN-IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS AND ALIEN FRIENDS’, a solo project launched in 2020 by Alien Friend, member in Swedish band REDMOON. The song is also one of the highlights in the double album 17 BIRDS AT THE SUMMER’S GATE (2021) Discover it the January 12th in Formula Indie
The latter, co-produced by legendary David Myhr (from the Merrymakers) brings together elements of power pop, folk and indie rock, but although many of the songs might be rooted in musical soil of the sixties and the seventies, there’s no nostalgia here. The lyrics are heartfelt and poetic, sometimes ironic, but contemporary and always honest.
A big group of musicians have contributed on the project. Multi-talented David Myhr plays several instruments on many tracks – and shares lead vocals on some of them (one of them being “But Come on now”) The old friends in REDMOON should also be mentioned: Daniel Lagerlöf, Åke Lindgren and Johan Lundström.
More good things are yet to come. Three new singles – and eventually a new full-length album will – be released during 2022.
