RORY GILLANDERS Drops Indie-Rock Anthem EYE OF A HURRICANE

''The song came to me in a dream. I was looking down at a hurricane causing all this destruction but I felt calm. I woke up and thought, there's gotta be an idea for a song in this. I guess this song is about hope and trying to keep moving forward no matter what obstacles life throws at you''.

With influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Noel Gallagher, you would be immediately intrigued as to where that sound sits. Well, Irish singer-songwriter Rory Gillanders must come pretty close. A true spirit and fire is within this young talent, and with a plethora of singles already released, he returns with new indie-rock belter Eye Of A Hurricane.

The track starts with a familiar acoustic guitar, which is the driving force behind the track and then Rory’s twang and swagger enters with his vocal. This track builds to a fantastic climax when the Gillanders bellows the title in an epic call and response with a huge electric guitar climbing behind it. You can imagine this song being played to crowds of all sizes when the circuit does return, and Rory Gillanders will be at the forefront of it.

Rory explains the meaning behind Eye Of A Hurricane: ”The song came to me in a dream. I was looking down at a hurricane causing all this destruction but I felt calm. I woke up and thought, there’s gotta be an idea for a song in this. I guess this song is about hope and trying to keep moving forward no matter what obstacles life throws at you”.
