We could all use some extra positivity in our lives and today’s Inbox Jukebox Presents is bringing it with style. Halifax duo Neon Dreams’ new track “Turn Back Now” is sunshine in a bottle mixed with a bouncy pop beat to lift you up.
The song starts with a whistling hook that’s destined to stay on your lips for days as the band claps along to the skippy acoustic melody. “Turn Back Now” tells you that it’s alright if you’re not where you want to be yet—keep going because you’ve already come so far. And when that chorus explodes into a giddy anthem to dance along to, you’ll believe every word.
“I wanted to create a song that would help inspire others facing struggle.”
Vocalist Frank Kadillac wrote this song for a very special reason, explaining the meaning behind it: “Last year I witnessed my mother go through chemotherapy and beat cancer,” he says. “I was amazed at how positive she remained through the entire process. It made me realize the power of positive thinking. I wanted to create a song that would help inspire others facing struggle.”
No matter how tough your week has been, it’s time to turn it around and let go of your worries for a few minutes while Neon Dreams fill you up with positive energy. “Turn Back Now” is pure and honest and completely irresistible because of it. Hit play on the track below and we’ll leave you with Kadillac’s story on the beautiful way the song’s message came to light:
“I started watching movies, reading books and listening to music from my childhood that inspired me and made me who I am. I realized they are all heroic, and I saw this phrase come up a lot – ‘we came way too far to turn back now.’ I wrote the song based on that concept.”
Fun fact about Neon Dreams:
“Despite amassing over 20 million streams, a gold single, and accumulating an ever-growing fan base, something was missing. Neon Dreams needed to make a change, so frontman Frank Kadillac headed to a healing retreat in Sedona, Arizona, where he was encouraged to open up about his troubled childhood. The experience made Kadillac realize the power he holds as a songwriter.”
