'By the way That's the Door' by The Family Baloo

Original Song

The song ‘By the way That’s the Door’ is taken from the album ‘Drinking with Owls’, which was written, recorded and released during lockdown 2020. The album is both a personal and political attempt to make sense of the enforced isolation, fear and frustration of that time, but it is more than a historical document and it’s resonance still remains. The record was approached as a challenge, how can a band forced apart still make and record music together? The obstacles soon became assets, forcing the group to re-evaluate previous strategies and means of collaboration. The resulting collection of songs ended up reflecting on the situation but also presented a new, more experimental direction for the band.
