As a song, 'Damn' is about the power play between two people. The magnetism, the seduction… It’s about desire and heartbreak, about someone who has a hold on you. Red Rosamond grew up listening to stars like Aretha Franklin, Dinah Washington, Al Green & Tina Turner. Inspired by their work, with every song she writes, she aims to be true.
The video was recorded during 2 days in Sweden last summer and was directed, produced and edited by Francis Moon. The song is about letting go of barriers and tries to look forward despite obstacles standing in front. A person can do so much with just some encouragement and new energy from people around. Sometimes it doesn´t require much to take that extra step in the right direction. This video and song might very well be all you need for today.

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
