Stone To A Balloon is a love song about a broken relationship, where one person is fighting to keep it alive whilst the other one drifts. The metaphor of stone to a balloon is used to reflect that – one person acts as the stone (the rock of the relationship) whilst the other is the balloon (the drifter). In a working relationship, the two counter each other harmoniously – but in this case, it’s the emotional realization that it no longer works that drives the song.Bianca Lewis - Vocals/Keys
“Stone to a Balloon” by Nova Neon
Mesmerizing and beautiful bluesy vocals that flow with ease through the unique sound created by the band as it blends and blurs the lines between genres and creates something so perfectly theirs while allowing us to make it ours. With a maturity and honesty in the verses that is hard to come by, Nova Neon digs deep into the reality of love and heartbreak to truly connect with the listeners. We have all seen or been there, one pulls to be together while the other drifts away, this is not how it will work and in the end the stone lets go of the balloon and they both go their separate ways. As hard as you try to make it feel right and to turn the fantasy in your head into the reality of your life, love is not like that. Love holds harmony and balance, both parties of this wonderful experience need to value and move forward together giving support and cherishing each moment holding each other. Maybe you are a stone keeping something down or the balloon drifting away, if that’s the case simply let go, for the tighter you hold the stronger the pain becomes.
