about

“Free” starts off sounding vaguely like the Little River Band’s “Hang On”. The ocarina used in the melody gives an unmistakeable sound, and is used intermittently throughout the song. The lyrics paint a picture of confusion and sets the mood toward a general feeling of empathy. When asked what this song was about Ivan’s mood instantly became sombre; he went on to describe an experience that he had one morning whilst doing some work for an elderly lady who had always been polite and kind towards him. A slight disagreement broke out over something trivial and ended up with this woman tearfully apologising and confiding in Ivan about the recent suicide of her seventeen year old granddaughter, and that the funeral was on that day. Ivan said that this absolutely floored him and he was genuinely moved by her outpouring of grief; he unashamedly told me that the experience left him in such an emotional state that later that day he went home and cried for several hours.
