Germany based indie rock artist M. Byrdhas signed to Nettwerk Music Group, and recently he celebrated the news with his new single “Flood” with an accompanying music video. M. Byrd writes songs for these moments in life where you feel like you’re the main character in your own movie.
An airy indie rock song uplifted by swooning vocals, “Flood” is about the turbulence of life, being on the road and community, and also about the art of letting go. “I’ve been traveling, and I have this thought of where home is and what home means to me,” he reveals.“My partner’s family is in Denmark. My family is somewhere at the French border. My friends are everywhere. I’m trying to make sense of letting go and still being firmly with myself and the people I love,” adds M. Byrd. The music video was directed by the talented videographer Joseph Strauch and captures life on tour in a clever way, making the viewers feel like they are a part of a road movie.“
“Flood” takes you on a ride. It’s a song about the interplay of love, distance, family, and moving forward in your life,” states M. Byrd about the track. “I like to think of it as a constant cascade, like a waterfall that is becoming stronger and stronger, the more it is raining. Musically I find that to be most apparent in the littler guitar melody that slowly weaves into the song in the second part of the song as it is growing to a big cascading choir that Doreen and I recorded in like 2 overdubs together. We were just screaming in the room, it was magnificent!”d part of the song as it is growing to a big cascading choir that Doreen and I recorded in like 2 overdubs together.
