Taking a rare turn on piano, singer-songwriter Eric Brombacher has penned a melancholy ballad of love gone wrong. The protagonists (represented by the seagulls pictured in the cover art), face the age old struggle of reconciling fantasy with reality in romance. “Isn’t love supposed to last forever?” Well it doesn’t always work out that way does it?
Eric Brombacher pens a ballad about love gone wrong.
Anchored by a simple yet plaintive piano performance, highlights include a confident drum performance by Dino Naccarato, and an otherworldy electric guitar performance by Ken Yoshioka. Bassist Tim Bradford provides just the right groove to keep the song rolling while also singing a beautiful harmony over the bridge section which leads us into Ken’s aching guitar solo.
The production is inspired by those late 70’s and early 80’s hard rock bands that knew that the only way for them to rule the airwaves was to include a radio friendly ballad, usually found near the end of ‘side 2’ on the LP or cassette tape.
Written by Eric Brombacher, “Last Forever” is an international collaboration recorded one piece at a time at Orange Peel Productions in Lauchringen, Germany, at Dean’s Attic in Toronto, Ken’s living room in Toronto, and Tim’s basement in North Bay. Look for more new Eric & The Soo songs coming in early 2022.
