Swedish multi-instrumentalist Rikard Sjöblom has recently announced a new album under the Gungfly moniker, ‘Alone Together’, set for release on the 4th September 2020. In preparation the band have shared the first single ‘Happy Somewhere In Between’ 

Rikard comments: “I wanted to write an upbeat prog-rocker about a subject I was reading about, and got intrigued by: the dynamics in a relationship – how one person can be needy and the other one avoidant. These personality traits sometimes attract each other but then things get problematic when one needs a lot of attention and the other one tends to feel trapped by it. It’s also about mixing things up in general and pretty much a fun song about serious stuff.”

Guitar led prog rock with a country vibe from the guitar licks the track takes on a Deep Purple tinge with the multiple instruments and clever guitar work. The prerequisite hammond organ is there too with a Jon lord inspired solo to end the track.
