We decided to let you in on them secrets behind some of the songs from the album (maybe we'll cover all of them. I don't know. We'll see how long it takes before we get bored).
So to start us off, here is Haylee's reasoning behind one of our favourite songs on the band side: Snollygoster. Enjoy...
The world according to Haylee G. We live in a world where, even in such a wealthy country like Scotland, extremes of poverty are the norm, where people die for no reason, where governments lie and steal from their people. Haylee G isn't one to stay silent amidst injustice. This song is a call to arms, to draw attention to the “snollygosters” of Scotland, the UK and the World. It uses a Scottish rhyme, the Jelly Piece Song, which talks about poverty. This is one song we were most excited to play and record. We knew it was going to be good.
