(Grant Skelton introduces our premiere of a video for a new song by the British band Eye of Solitude from their forthcoming album, Cenotaph.)
Eye Of Solitude will release their new album Cenotaph next week (September 1). This Friday (August 26), No Clean Singing will bring you an exclusive full-album stream of that release along with my review. Cenotaph is an album meant for solitary enjoyment. It will disengage you from all externalities and invite you to retreat inward — to places inside your soul you aren’t even aware of.
In the meantime, No Clean Singing is proud to present another exclusive from Cenotaph. Below, you will find the official music video for the track “This Goodbye. The Goodbye.” The video, directed by Razvan Alexandru, is deliberately slow and contemplative. Just like the track itself.
In the night, our tormented protagonist awakens alone at his writing desk. His attempts to assuage his anguish with liquor have proven futile, as evidenced by the empty decanter on the desk. Throughout the narrative, the protagonist is afflicted by visions. Whether or not these are real, or merely manifestations of the narrator’s own psychological distress, I leave to the viewer.
Watch “This Goodbye. The Goodbye,” below, and if you like what you hear, don’t forget check out our exclusive advance stream of Eye Of Solitude’s Cenotaph this Friday, August 26. Preorder Cenotaph here.
