about

Flagship is the first song of "Project Free Your Voice". Project Free Your Voice is a charity initiative devised by Jono Wilson and Banana Nightmare.

In April 2012 they received lyrics from a young adult named Ben. Ben has autism (a neurological disorder that impacts on social interaction, communication, and behaviour.) He uses a keyboard to communicate, when encouraged by skilled communication partners. Ben is not yet able to speak or sing, but like all of us he has a song within. With Ben's lyrics the song "Flagship" was created.

After seeing the joy brought by allowing this individual to release his song within, the pair decided this was something worthwhile. Thus Project Free Your Voice was created. They aim to allow those who have complex communication needs to share with them the joy and benefits of creating music. Although only one song has been created so far, there are more songs needing to be heard and more stories to be told, and they are always on the look out for more lyrics from those with disabilities restricting their communication.

The song Flagship is guiding them and inspiring them to take a stand, in an effort to aid those with complex communication needs around them. All proceeds raised from Flagship and other Project Free Your Voice songs will be donated to the charity of the lyricists choice. In doing this they aim to support the individual and also help others with similar needs. We hope that you all enjoy Flagship as much as we have enjoyed "freeing Ben's voice".

about

Banana Nightmare Brisbane, Australia

Banana Nightmare sounds like the universe becoming self-aware for the first time.

Through a mixture of face-melting post-rock and introspective shoe-gaze music, Banana Nightmare hopes to speak out against dogma and superstitious thinking, whilst promoting critical reasoning and scientific discoveries.

The first EP, "Bananageddon", will be released over the course of 2012.

Track Name: Flagship (feat. Jono Wilson)
Hunger never takes its love away
Never for a single day.
Haunting caverns of my mind
Scaring me just what it finds.

So the flagship rolls on by
Watching the days as children cry.
So the flagship rolls on in
Watching the sinners sin.
Longing evenings alone on the rock
Wishing that your golden boy talks.
The feature list is about to be played
For all the world to finally be dazed.

I want to gasp the cold air in my lungs
Feeling the sense of songs to be sung.
Touch on my skin aint supposed to cause pain
But your touch does it again and again.

So the flagship rolls on by
Watching the days as children cry.
So the flagship rolls on in
Watching the sinners sin.
Longing evenings alone on the rock
Wishing that your golden boy talks.
The feature list is about to be played
For all the world to finally be dazed.

The flagship comes, the flagship goes
Where it comes from nobody knows.
It comes from silence, that's filled with noise
It came with guidance not to destroy.
Such simple breaths.

So the flagship rolls on by
Watching the days as children cry.
So the flagship rolls on in
Watching the sinners sin.
I wonder how the chore began
Of making lights appear in sand.
Lighting the way for the damned trip
That life coined. The flagship.
