Long Walk Down

Album: Second Sound (2014)


  • "Long Walk Down" is the fifth track on Druckfarben's 2014 sophomore release, Second Sound. The music was written by the progressive rock band's keyboard player, Will Hare. He brought the song to their guitarist, Ed Bernard, who liked it right away. "It was great because it has a nice ballad feel to it, which is something that we don't always do either," said Bernard in our interview.
  • Bernard was happy that "Long Walk Down" was fairly short because a criticism that prog rock often endures is that the songs are far too long so people do not want to listen them. Bernard explained that sometimes they have to fix the length of their tunes. "We actually try to make our songs longer sometimes if it doesn't happen," he said.
  • Bernard wrote the lyrics, and says he wants the listener to come up with their own meaning for the song. "I ad-libbed the vocals and I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about," he said. "Everyone is free to interpret that one how they want but I think it's pretty."
