Fire has always played an important role in people’s culture.
In addition to the symbolic similarities with knowledge and power, it also symbolized the warmth of a home.
After all, Fire has always been the center of a social or family gathering.
Keeping the Fire “alive” has always been extremely important.
But between two people, when one “goes out“, the other has to go overboard to keep the Fire going.
Even if the rain tries to destroy it, it has a significant advantage.
When the storms of life threaten to wipe out every dream, then a warm refuge seems like a divine gift.
Fire in the Rain
In our case, a friend of Filippa Nässil’s, guitarist and soulmate of the Swede Thundermother was this gift.
In a difficult time for the main creator of the hard rock band, he supported her as much as anyone, so that she could reopen her wings after the storm.
The “Fire in the Rain” ballad was the least she could dedicate to him.
At the beginning of 2018, the band’s first ballad was released on their third and self-titled album.
In fact, it was their second single, but also a brand-new band, as a year ago 4 members left the band, just before their scheduled tour.
Nässil managed to gather her pieces and start the band from the beginning, as a quartet now with new bandmates.
As the singer of the band, Guernica Mancini, revealed in an interview with N. Dalampyra, it is a tribute song.
A song dedicated to Pontus Snibb singer and soul of the band Bonafide, but also Filippa’s fiancé.
In the most difficult phase of her life, he was the one who stood by her side and helped her in every way, as the singer of the band narrates.
This song was written entirely by the guitarist, as well as all the tracks on the album.
The new members simply had to learn the material, which was the demo for the new members who joined but always under the name Thundermother.
Guernica, who sang it, feels perfectly represented, as she herself has received similar support in difficult times.
After all, it was the first song she recorded for her new band, but also the song with which she was tested for her new band.
