Towa Bird's "Boomerang" is a catchy indie-rock jam about the pain of long-distance relationships.

Towa Bird’s latest single, “Boomerang,” is a powerful jam about love and loss and long-distance relationships. Are they worth it? The song is about the pain of a breakup and the hope that the person who left will eventually come back (both emotionally and geographically). It’s both edgy yet happy. Towa’s voice sounds perfect matched with the energetic guitar riffs. The song is completely new yet somehow feels familiar.

It opens with Bird singing about how she can’t sleep, eat, or breathe feeling the push-pull of a long distance relationship. She compares herself to a “maniac” and a “skipping stone” that can’t seem to find its way back to shore all set to the catchy melody and distorted guitar riffs.

As the song progresses, Bird’s pain turns to anger. She sings about how she’s tired of being the only one who cares and how she’s ready to move on (or move to). Towa Bird has been quoted elsewhere saying that long-distance relationships are one of the worst things ever invented. But you can also ignore all that and just enjoy the music.

Boomerangs come in many shapes and sizes depending on their geographic or tribal origins and intended function. Many people think only of the traditional Australian type, although today there are many types of more easily usable boomerangs, such as the cross-stick, the pinwheel, the tumble-stick, the Boomabird, and now these types of relationships.

“Boomerang” is a raw and emotional song that captures the pain and hope of a breakup. It’s a song that anyone who has ever been in love can relate to. You can dive into its cathartic nature or just bounce your head and jam.

Fun Fact

Despite seemingly sharing the same last name, there is no hereditary relationship between Towa Bird and Jade Bird. (They should totally team up, regardless.)
