‘Gypsy on the Run’
Vernon Aaron D’souza, a student from Wilson College in Mumbai, recently sent us his newest country song, ‘Gypsy on the Run.’ We pass the mic over to the young singer-songwriter as he tells us more about his internationally-recognised song. The song even featured on the Rolling Stones Playlist for the month of June, alongside Naezy and Enkore!
‘Gypsy On The Run’ was written and composed in November 2018. It’s a country rock song, something very different from the soft, easy listening, stuff I usually sing. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and write something that no one would expect me to sing or perform, hence I would say that this track is an experimental track. While writing it, I was listening to a lot of Oasis and Queen records. I was pretty new to Oasis and I thought, “This is so raw and attractive! Why doesn’t anyone write such songs anymore?” And eventually, I wrote ‘Gypsy On The Run’. The song is about how I want to live life the way I want to. I don’t want to get caught in the everyday rituals of life and be just another face in the crowd. I want to think that a lot of young dreamers will relate to this song.
