Lyricist, singer, guitarist Nima Tehranchi (Arrows of Love, The Sliding Rule, formerly Hush the Many, Heed the Few) visits the studio to talk about his latest album release PRODUCT Your Soundtrack To The Impending Societal Collapse, 2018, which we’ll sample.
Nima is a founding member of Arrows of Love – a five-piece group who released their debut album, Everything’s F*cked, in 2014 to acclaim. As a solo project Nima plays as The Sliding Rule but he has currently lent his guitar to someone else.
From an Iranian family, Nima’s British upbringing is reflected in his music. So we asked Nima to help review the below track The Last Refugee by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd).
The third single and track on Roger Water’s studio album, Is This the Life We Really Want?, it was released as a single in May, 2017. The song has been a staple of his controversial Us + Them Tour since it began, a tour named after a quote from Barack Obama’s speech on immigration reforms, in which he stated that nationalism should not be established on an “us and them” basis.
THE LAST REFUGEE
Under lemon tree skies
Show me the shy, slow smile you keep hidden by warm brown eyes
And wonder at loves sweet ache
And the wild beat of my heart
She was taking a last look at the sea
Wading through dreams, up to our knees in warm ocean swells
While bathing belles, soft beneath
Hard bitten shells punch their iPhone
Erasing the numbers of radon done lovers
And search the horizon
Down by the shore
Digging around for a chain or a bone
Searching the sand for a relic washed up by the sea
