There’s a real magic that happens when someone is able to not just translate the spirit of a song into a visual form but also add a new dimension of expression to it.

On the opening missive from the collaborative album between awakened souls and From Overseas, serenity is an endless sky; it’s the feeling of being suspended in midair, weightless and unencumbered by gravity. Aeriform drones spread like golden wings, fueled by the anticipation of an earthly embrace. Lilting vocals are the sun kissing unseen wounds, sanguine piano chords … Continue reading Video Premiere: awakened souls & From Overseas “Certainty Of Tides”
