About the Song 

When you let a song loose into the world, you wonder where it will end up, who will listen to it and how it will be interpreted. There is a sense of mystery and fear when you release music in the world, much like an arrow shot aimlessly into the heavens. The dream-like sounds of Arrow mixes influences of Crosby, Stills and Nash with Elliot Smith.

When I read Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem The Arrow and a Song (Written in 1845), a complete melody flowed out like a dream. The recording was laid onto digital tape at The NutShed recording studio in Clara, Co. Offaly. It was mixed and produced by Joe Egan (Bressie, Jerry Fish, JigJam) and mastered by Aidan Cunningham (Blizzards, Apella, The Scratch). It features Hubert on guitar and vocals. The Artwork was created by Tullamore native Claire Guinan.

Lyrics

For, so swiftly it flew, the sight

Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

 

For who has sight so keen and strong,

That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak

I found the arrow, still unbroke;

And the song, from beginning to end,

I found again in the heart of a friend.

 

I shot an arrow into the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

And the song, from beginning to end,

I found again in the heart of a friend.

 

I shot an arrow into the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

And the song, from beginning to end,

I found again in the heart of a friend.
