With big balloon I tried to describe something beautiful, something untouchable, like being in a perfect world where love conquers all. I think I view this song as a getaway from the realisation that some things are meant to last and others aren’t. I get a choice, we get a choice. But sometimes that might not be enough. For those moments this song should bring solace, an escape. A description of a perfect world where love wins. 

 

ferdinant.

The Dutch songwriter got support by the exceptionally talented Casey Shirin, who complements the song perfectly and makes your heart ache even more. The duet is an ode to the real fight for love, immersive and wistful, able to make the listener relate with the two sides in a relationship. Produced by the platinum-awarded producer duo Quarterhead and co-written and produced by Derek Ullenboom, the tune manages to create an intimate melancholy, carried by a beautiful looping guitar riff and tasteful lo-fi drums. This energy makes you nod your head while crying at the same time.

Big Balloon is the first single after ferdinant.'s 'Airplanes' EP, which was released earlier this year, was featured in eight different New Music Fridays, got radio rotation in Germany (FluxFM, Unser Ding, Antenne Bayern and more) and the Netherlands (NPO, 3GDR, Radio1...) and reached over 2 million streams to date.

When I first listened to "Big Balloon" I got warm and hopeful feelings. 
As if you look at someone and the world around you is quiet and nothing else matters. 
Love can feel so easy, like you’re flying in a balloon but experiencing rough patches is also part of the journey.

ferdinant. X Casey Shirin – Big Balloon (Lyrics)

 

It’s me and you in a big balloon,

with a thousand lies and a simple truth.

            We got our time.

Oh the flashing lights, it’ll be all right.

A perfect night to go out and fly.

            We got our time.

 

            Won't you stay just for a little,

            Carve our names in stone.

            Meet right here in the middle of it all,

            Cause with you I’m right at home.

 

And it’s me and you

in a big balloon

Yeah we’re flying high

Never low with you

You make me smile

 

As the ashes fall were above it all

If we just hold on

We can never fall

You make me smile

 

                        Won't you stay just for a little,

                        Carve our names in stone.

                        Meet right here in the middle of it all,

                        Cause with you I’m right at home.

 

                        Won't you stay just for a little,

                        Carve our names in stone.

                        Meet right here in the middle of it all,

                        Cause with you i'm right at home.

 

 

Cause it‘s me and you in a big balloon,

Like the sky we‘ll cry but we will make it through,

 

make it through.
