Contemplative guitar melodies point their compass toward open spaces where things move at a slower speed. Desolation may not be the intent, but a thread unwinding throughout “Delusion Drive” finds its way into the wilderness anyway. In the video, directed by Van Auken and filmed by Robert Delahanty, a narrative reflects on the weight of technology on today’s society through surreal Western imagery that heightens the penitent chord progressions. Accompanied by elegiac synth textures and incisive piano silhouettes, “Delusion Drive” moves with purpose down a neverending road.
“Delusion Drive” appears on American Harmony, out now on CD and digital formats via Debacle Records. Available HERE.
