    Rookley works most of the time travelling between the States and Europe, and recently on one of his visits to Berlin found the inspiration for this light-weight city-inspired track: The feeling of the city overwhelming you. The track builds up to a climax, Rookley composed the track with an image in mind: The image of a orchestral conductor, slowly driving the music into a swell with his baton - until the song becomes a wave overpowering you with an ocean of shimmering impressions of city lights flying by. Analog Waldorf Synths blended into shoving beat kicks, then a moment of ease, underlined by laughing voices and a solo guitar - just to grow back into a flood of neon light colours.

     

    The story behind the Open Eyes Cover is the mesmerizing view of a Festival-Skyline, or better – the view of a Festival Crowd, dancing, seen from above in a bird-flight.

    While taking photos at a festival, Rookley took some time to lay down and look at the scenery upside-down. That new perspective gave his the idea for Open Eyes - looking at the people, the stage and the things happening from a changed perspective made his see people's’ emotions in a new way, distanced, yet more humane: Being in the world, but not part of it.

     

    Rookley adds a new emotional platform to his music, the distanced observation of nostalgic emotion, set in the urban, triggered by a wish: To be stronger, to withstand the overwhelming, just like the wave a bass overcoming the listener.
