Rob Dickson – Water Rushing In (Audio)

I’ve always thought a lot about how my experiences and memories colour my view of the world, and how they establish predispositions and biases. A lot of people never acknowledge how coloured their vision of the world is. I think the effect of this is only amplified as the world continues to become more violent and torn.

I wrote a lot of the songs on Looking Through Your Window, my forthcoming new record, while I was traveling, looking out the windows of planes, trains, and cars. When I started compiling songs for the album, I noticed that a lot of what I wrote included characters grappling  with memories and perspective. My first single, “Water Rushing In,” is a portrait of a hybrid character I created who’s life was profoundly impacted by colonization and industrialization. He is looking back on his life and trying to make sense of it all.
