Gazel has shared the video for her new single,’Walk On Land’. The track is the latest single to be taken from the artist, “multi-instrumentalist” and “genre-blending” debut album, ‘Gazel’s Book Of Souls’, which will be released on the 4th of October 2019.
Speaking about the video, Gazel said; “We shot the video in Bristol with Conner Foley and Alex Millichamp, with choreography by Hannah Millchamp. It was great fun to make a video for such a colourful, summery song, and to create choreography for my lyrics. The track is a celebration of the interconnectedness of man and the natural world, so shooting outside in such a beautiful setting seemed a perfect way to express that in the video.”
The video has been described, by Wilful Publicity, as “bewitching and enthralling, the video summons the ritualistic nature of dance, seeing Gazel, and an all-female cast, flow effortlessly through surreal visions of natural beauty, summoning elemental spirits and evoking undertones of mystic significance, accompanied by the track’s possessing steel drums and intoxicating melodies.”
Gazel’s latest single ‘Walk On Land’ is the fifth single to be taken from her enthralling debut album, ‘Gazel’s Book Of Souls’. The release follows the captivating ‘Rain Is Coming’, ‘Mina’s Hymn’, Pointing At The Moon’ and the ethereal ‘You’re Not Funny’. The album will be released on October 4th 2019.
Speaking about her new single, ‘Walk On Land’, Gazel said; “‘Walk On Land’ is a song to celebrate the interconnectedness of man and the natural environment, and the joy inherent in remembering that the nature of things has no true separation deeper than appearances.”
‘Walk On Land’ is the fifth song to be taken from Gazel’s upcoming album, ‘Gazel’s Book Of Souls’, which follows the story of a young girl who seeks to find the cause of a mysterious fire which destroyed her village, and in the process encounters a variety of ‘souls’ who dwell in her town’s collective unconscious, each of which is represented by a different track on the album.
According to Wilful Publicity, the album was “influenced by Jungian archetypes, mystical philosophy and the folk music of her Middle-Eastern roots, the album is an eclectic and captivating blend of subtle electronica, folk and pop.”
“When writing ‘Gazel’s Book of Souls’ I knew I wanted to create a mythological structure of the unconscious mind – like an imaginary psychic map,” says Gazel. “I wanted a theme for each song, each representing a different aspect of the human psychic tendency – grief, growth, technology, symbolism, problems of identity and belief in the mind’s fabrications. ‘Gazel’s Book of Souls’ is music that explores dreams, consciousness and the great mystery of the human mind.”
Following the release of ‘Gazel’s Book Of Souls’, the singer will be taking her “immersive and captivating” live performance on the road for a slew of headline shows, with dates in Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Brighton and London.
