'Little Soul' video release [Arcadian Resonance]

'Little Soul' features on 'Arcadian Resonance'
To those we never met
Who lived before a breath
We'll not forget

This song was written in the aftermath of some heart-breaking news my wife and I received a couple of years ago. We were due our second born and full of expectation, made our way to hospital for the first 12 week scan, unfortunately that little soul had no heart beat. Nothing really prepares you for such a switch of emotions -  we both vowed we must move on but  never forget.

Not to dwell on this sombre topic for too long, but our general experience was quite mixed and this is an issue that seems to divide - the statistics read that an occurrence of this type happens to  1 in every 3 women, although no one ever seems to talk about this topic - it is almost frowned upon and to share. With a third of the female population experiencing this kind of  loss, it seems quite tragic so much of this suffering goes on hidden away. If this song could even help just one person share their feelings or likewise, if this music could provide solace to someone in a similar situation I would feel honoured.


Since then life has been kind to us and we've been lucky to have a new healthy baby.   

The original music video for this song was some low lit footage from inside Pirate Studios that I decided to replace with something slightly more engaging and hopefully appealing. If you want to watch this version it's still available on Playfio's Youtube channel: Little Soul - PLAYFIO

This official version of the video for 'Little Soul' looks to the heavens towards the moon in 
the stunning film by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh, which captures that moment of awe and amazement as passing people take a moment to stop and peer through a window to space.
