Even though it's a folk song at it's heart, we decided to avoid using any guitars, and instead opting for giving space to the vocal harmonies colored by glitched out Rhodes and Harp.
My wife, Lara Somogyi, who I wrote the song for, played the harp, and the vocal support was from Chamois who features on many of my songs (End of Days, New Ground) along with live electronic manipulations from Folial (Finder), who was able to create these swirling, organic loops out of the notes of the rhodes I was sending him.
It was a really special day and I'm really excited that we captured the essence of that moment in a completely raw way. It gives the song a whole new life when it exists in a physical space for a single moment.
The unreal cinematography is thanks to the dark arts of my good friend @curtismorgan and his lean and mean crew of @teddymuse and @kevin_denning .
The other musicians featured are incredible people and friends who I’m lucky to know and love.
