Te Mana, a revolutionary Australian band release a new single called “When I’m Not There”. In addition to the great acoustic work, it’s a reflective song about a failed relationship. Sometimes we have to focus our attention on the good moments in order to prevent a breakup. Nevertheless, the message here is clear, value what you have until it’s gone. The narrative-based lyrics explore an unconditional love, which feels like a self-examination of the past. To sum up, it’s beautiful as deep emotions permeate the entire composition. Check this out!
The newly formed band is composed of five talented artists, Shannon Thompson (lead singer), Rawhiti Turnbull (guitar), Shane Tane (drums), Roland Kapene (bass) and Tanielu Pula (keys). These guys take inspiration from big names in the industry like George Benson, UB40, Earth Wind & Fire, Toto Donald Fagan, Bob Marley and many more. Definitely, they are making moves with their genre-bending style but most importantly, they empower people to seek freedom through their meaningful tunes. Without a doubt, “When I’m Not There”, leaves us hungry for more.
