First Day Lion’s Share ‘Summer Child’

Designed to bring those fresh summer days straight to your ears and a tan to your soul, First Day Lion’s ‘Summer Child’ will help shake away them chilly blues and make the sun come out! 

Inspired by our changing world, and those trying to make it a better place. 

We wanted to deliver something warm, lively, and play as a theme for the summer. For inspiration we looked to our own passions. One that ranks right up there is ‘being happy’. Priorities right? But being conscious of the big, blue and green marble that we call “home”, is up there too. So we set out combining the two, keeping in mind that we wanted to make sure anyone, anywhere could play it. At the beach, in the car, being Irish and googling images of clear blue skies and an outdoor pool, etc. 

Probably the biggest influence for the song was one, young, inspirational leader, Greta Thunberg. We wanted the song to take from the point of view of someone who could understand that the world needed to change, but takes a minute to remember the ‘simpler’ life before. The bigger picture however is that things are changing. There are other answers to leading a cosy life, and some are just as easy with simple adjustments of how we live day to day. But education is key. Enter; someone who can represent the generation that will inherit the world we leave behind.

Summer Child’ is the youth and the generations still to come, while the song is taken from the perspective of us, the ones who will be leaving it to them, and whom can still make a positive change.
