I THINK I KNOW FOR SURE
The COVID takedown has meant many things for many people. For the creative chameleon, it was time to peel-back yet another layer of skin to reveal an entirely new pigment – an iridescent sunburst orange in colour, melody and tone – taking time in his home studio. This new fabric of songs will soon take the form of a new 12” – I Think I Know For Sure – to be released on Friday, August 21.
“It allowed me to sit back, slow down and take stock," reflects Balbi. "It became clear to me what really mattered. Simply, family, friends and creativity are my world. I willingly went back to basics and was inspired to make a body of work that echoes the music that inspired me as a child. It feels as though this record has been waiting for me for years. And it’s the opposite of what seems to be popular right now. Perhaps for that reason alone, I love it even more. I think I know for sure.”
