Although the Sun offers the greatest energy on Earth, the poets praise the Moon.
Which just keeps the sunlight on for those who get lost at night so they can just find their way.
The goal of man to reach the moon shows their finite ambitions. But they don’t all have the Moon as their target.
There are those who also target the Sun, without fear of getting burnt. And if they do … they will do so while trying for something better.
After all, no matter how small a tree, the tops of its branches always look for the sun.
Even a Bonzai always aspires to be a Sunshot.
We are talking about the Stoner Rock band Bonzai, who paraphrases the name of pygmy trees to sound more desert.
“Sunshot” is just the instrumental track of their debut album, “Seeds to Roots“, released in February (2019).
The song is essentially the creation of the whole band, and it doesn’t take many words to describe what it means with notes alone.
In fact, words are unnecessary.
As the band members tell us, Sun plays a vital role… Not only for the particular type of trees that gave their name to the band but also for its thematology.
The title of the song expresses the greatest need of man to reach not only the Moon but also the Sun and was added to the music that already existed.
It is in the nature of man to always believe in what transcends him, but with time as an ally, he reaches it, while developing himself.
The inspiration came from their own music, which flirts heavily with Desert Rock.
An indefinable idea and a note, was the beginning for each band member to add their own Rock (piece).
The band’s creative process is to bring a melody by Giannis Omp (Voice / Guitar), or Dmitri Parisis (Guitar) and the other members build on it.
The notes carry a message on their own, and as the musicians reveal, this is the second part of the song.
In fact, it is another property of the Sun, that is, it never ceases to illuminate, within the limits of human perception.
What the notes want to say is: You have to keep on pursuing your goals endlessly. Just like your dreams.
Keep on setting bigger and bigger goals until you get to the Sun or just your own “personal Sun“.
