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.

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
