'Isolation' video release [Arcadian Resonance]

For quite some time this never had a proper title, it'd just been named ArgU on my laptop, after an argument one evening with my other half, I'd skulked off in a huff and proceeded to write this song.

Since then the track has developed into what you can hear/ see today - but I thought I would share this chain of events as it's  funny how certain triggers in our lives can spark creativity - a lucky argument if you will!

Some lyrics and guitar were added during later sessions at Pirate Studios in Glasgow - they seem to help complement this Playfio music video which is  set in another dimension, many years in the future, with two intrepid adventures trying to re-visit the old shell of earth that their ancestors used to call home.

The lyrics I particularly like:

I'd like to know, which way to go,
Which way to look, beyond this show.
If only one, can listen in, and look beyond the state I'm in.

A million miles, a hundred roads,
And only two can make it home.
Listen well, and listen wise
This one's yours, now step inside

I've asked a few people prior to release how they read this story - all being completely different - would love to hear people's thoughts about what they think is going on in this music video.

As always with these productions, I am just a part of the combined work of many extremely talented individuals from the guitar work, the amazing film craft and of course the mixing and mastering.
