Die UK Formation BIG BIG TRAIN widmet sich den (Hard) rockenden Retro Harmonien und das mit einer stetig wachsenden Fangemeinde. nachdem sie dieses Jahr bereits das Album “Common Ground“ und den neuen Song ’The Connection Plan’ herausgebracht haben, steht jetzt schon die neueste Komposition an: ‘Lanterna‘.
Gründungsmitglied und Bassist Gregory Spawton weiß zu berichten:
‘This song came about because of an unexpected journey in Italy. I was on holiday in Milan and travelled to the airport to fly back home. The plane that was due to land at Milan was diverted to Venice due to bad weather. Rather than hang around at the airport for a day or two, we rebooked our flight so that we could return from Genoa a few days’ later. With some time on our hands to explore the city, we ended up walking out to the beautiful lighthouse which is called the Lanterna di Genova. The Lanterna was built in the 16th century but there has been a lighthouse on the site since 1128. I liked the thought of mankind building these tall towers of light to extend our reach into the sea and to help bring sailors safely home’.
