“Blue Sky” by Foundry Town Survivors

24 June 2022

Surreal lyrics can come together a few different ways, but from where I’m sitting I don’t think there’s any beating what Foundry Town Survivors establish in the new single “Blue Sky.” Although there’s something to be said about the melodic trappings within this mix, there’s even more to be noted about the structure of these […]
