Richard Barbieri has shared his new single & video for the track ‘Serpentine’ – the first from his upcoming solo album Under A Spell due for release on 26th February.
The first song to be heard from Under A Spell, ‘Serpentine’ is a winding and expansive six-minute soundscape that weaves through multiple genres and ideas. Complex, calming, engrossing and experimental, ‘Serpentine’ is the perfect primer for Under a Spell – the work of a visionary musician working at his creative height.
The song is accompanied by a new 360 video created by Miles Skarin, allowing the viewer to travel along the floor of a foreboding forest, inspired by a nightmare Richard experienced and explained to the filmmaker.
“Miles Skarin has created an amazing 360 degree video for the track “Serpentine” from my new album “Under A Spell”. It’s based on a vivid nightmare I experienced from the perspective of a snake. He has created this dense forest where past spells and rituals are glimpsed, strange voices are heard and where danger lies ahead. Don’t keep to the path!
The track features a masterful bass arrangement from Percy Jones and the “hidden” voices of Lisen Rylander Love and Steve Hogarth.”
