About this track...

Felix Riebl describes, “Ready Now began as an accidental one hand arpeggio on a keyboard with an obnoxious synth horn sound on. It turned into a hard-hitting and fairly epic sounding fanfare that sounds like a dark marching band in flight. Lyrically it’s full of frustration and conflict, but the music gives it an edge of joy.”
