“Time Is Your Gun” by Fil Bo Riva – A Song Feature
Again, Fil Bo Riva proves masterful in using tempo changes to effectively convey emotion and repeatedly refresh interest in the melody. “Time Is Your Gun” is the third single from an upcoming debut album of Fil Bo Riva. The track includes a number of abrupt shifts in energy and a sustained crescendo that starts gaining momentum at the three-minute mark.
Fil Bo Riva is the performance name of Filippo Bonamici, who was born in Rome, schooled in Dublin, and now resides in Berlin. The guitarist skills of Felix A. Remm have been added to the sound of Fil Bo Riva. In talking about the latest single, Fil Bo Riva said:
“‘Time Is Your Gun’ is a song that somehow became a bridge between the EP and the upcoming debut album. I wrote the lyrics sometime after the EP was recorded and those lyrics felt like the last lines I had to write about the person most of the EP songs were written for. During the same time, I just had met Felix and one day we found ourselves jamming in the rehearsal room… somehow after a few hours we had this song done without knowing we were writing one. I don’t wanna sound too romantic, but I remember that the first chords we ever played were these ones. The words kept developing around the music and soon after we started playing the song live. Until today, we usually open our concerts with this track - the energy we get from it is unique.”
